MIL 301 - Small Unit Leadership I with Lab

Credits 3
MIL 300 level curriculum is intended to further build leadership skills to a point where cadets will be able to fully demonstrate their true leadership potential at the capstone Leadership Development & Assessment Course (LDAC). Mastering these skills will ultimately prepare cadets for their future responsibilities as Army officers. MIL 300 level instruction uses small unit infantry tactics as the context for developing and assessing leadership. Leadership instruction will be focused on the technical and tactical understanding of small unit operations and leadership skills will be evaluated using the Leadership Development Program (LDP). Additional instruction covers the principles of wars, the fundamentals and characteristics of the defense, and the application of Troop Leading Procedures (TLP) using the Operations Order format. An advanced leadership module addresses motivational theory and techniques, the role and actions of leaders, and risk assessment. The semester closes with instruction in small unit battle drills to facilitate practical application and further leader development during Lab and Squad Situational Training Exercises (STX). This course additionally includes a Leadership Lab which will reinforce the lessons learned in the classroom. The Military Science Basic Course is a prerequisite required for all 300 and 400 level courses.
