2 credits. No prerequisites. Includes a lab
Learn and apply principles of effective leading by focusing on
leadership theory and decision making. Reinforce self-confidence
through participation in physically and mentally challenging
exercises involving land navigation, basic military tactics,
patrolling, and communication skills. Leadership labs, physical
training sessions, and one weekend field training exercise make this
course challenging, extraordinary, and fun. Extracurricular
activities (optional) include Pershing Rifles and Little 50 and 500.
In addition to the MSL courses, Leadership Labs provide practical
experience for cadets and are scheduled during each semester.
Leadership Labs meet a minimum of 1 hour per week. The Leadership
Labs in the Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC) I ROTC Curriculum
are designed to build on the classroom material from the week in
which they are scheduled and contain activities for all MSL levels.
Like the curriculum, the Leadership Labs are also progressive and
sequential, yet they are flexible enough to accommodate geographic
restrictions, such as winter weather conditions.
