MSCI 441 - Junior Officer Leadership I


4 hours
Focusing on leadership, management, and ethics, MSCI 441  begins the final transition from cadet to lieutenant. The course focuses cadets, early in the year, on attaining apprentice-level knowledge and proficiency in several critical areas they will need to operate effectively as Army officers, including coordinating activities with staffs, counseling theory and practice within the “Army Context,” training management, and ethics. Cadets will continue to sharpen these skills as they perform their roles as cadet officers in the Rolling Thunder Battalion and after commissioning. At the end of this semester, cadets should possess the fundamental skills, attributes, and abilities to operate as competent leaders in the cadet battalion and confidently communicate to subordinate cadets their preparedness to shoulder the responsibilities entrusted to them. Course includes weekly leadership lab, one weekend field training exercise, and physical training. Prerequisite(s): MSCI 332 . Corequisite(s): MSCI 022 . UG
