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.

Force Sustainment (FS)

Force Sustainment trains, supports and transports. Branches include the solider-training Adjutant General Division, weapons systems and munitions-developing Ordnance Corps, field operations-supporting Quartermaster Corps, budget and disbursement managing Finance Corps and supply-moving Transportation Corps. Together, this division keeps the Total Army trained and running.

Operations Support (OS)

Thwart threats and keep information systems humming with Operations Support. The division’s Military Intelligence Corps saves in-battle front-line soldiers by assessing risks and enemy challenges by managing intelligence and data. The Signal Corps maintains Army’s data, information and voice systems through insightful planning, integration and operation. Cybersecurity conducts integrated and synchronized defensive and offensive cyberspace operations by targeting hostile enemy activities and capabilities.
