Department Chair, Lt. Col. Kent Wong

The Department of Aerospace Studies offers four-year, three-year, and two-year programs through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC). These provide matriculated men and women students an opportunity to earn commissions as officers in the U.S. Air Force in conjunction with completing baccalaureate degree requirements in academic fields of the student's choice.

The Department of Aerospace Studies offers academic preparation in interdisciplinary areas including communication skills, Air Force history, leadership and management principles and practices, decision-making theory and policy formulation, ethics and values, socialization process within the armed services, national and international relations, national defense structure, national security policy, and military law. Entry into the General Military Course (GMC) during the first two years of AFROTC is open to all students. Entry into the Professional Officer Course (POC) during the final two years is selective and is normally initiated during the student's sophomore year. Students may qualify to be commissioned in any of more than 60 technical and nontechnical officer career areas or as flying officers (pilots or navigators). For complete information concerning the Air Force ROTC Program, prospective students should contact: Department of Aerospace Studies, University of Utah at 801.581.6236.
