Army ROTC is the most flexible way to earn a degree in a college major you desire and begin a career and profession as an Army officer.
Nearly every college major is accepted by the Army to earn a commission. With the exception of Nursing and Cybersecurity, all Army branches are open to all college majors. Nursing majors must serve in the Army Nurse Corps if they wish to serve on active duty. The Cybersecurity Branch is highly competitive, and students are recommended to pursue a cybersecurity or a computer science major to qualify.
Officer Career Fields (Branches) are arranged into three areas
Maneuver, Fires, and Effects (MFE)
Officers within the Maneuver, Fires, and Effects are tasked with protecting lives through the actual or perceived use of weapons and movement against the enemy. Examples of Branches within this field are Engineers, Chemical Corps, Infantry, Armor, Aviation, and Field Artillery.
