Army ROTC

Army Reserve Officer Training Corps

Northwest Christian University has a crosstown agreement with the University of Oregon’s Army ROTC. Complete your bachelor’s degree at NCU while taking military science courses just across the street at the University of Oregon. This college program teaches students leadership theory as well as practical skills. Students learn the importance of teamwork and how to work together in various real-life situations. The end result is a Commission as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. An ROTC commission will allow you to serve on Active Duty, in the National Guard or Army Reserve with leadership training and experiences that prepare you for a successful career after college.
