Leadership Laboratory

For all MS courses, a Leadership Laboratory is scheduled. The lab provides students the opportunity to demonstrate an understanding of the leadership process and develop fundamental military skills. Lab dates and times are included in the course syllabus.

During labs, instruction on a variety of subjects with military application provides the context within which students have opportunities to both teach and lead in a group setting. Responsibility is expanded as the student progresses through the military science program. In the senior year, students assume responsibility for the planning, preparation, and conduct of the laboratory. Leadership Laboratory is mandatory for all students enrolled in military science courses.
