Learn About Military Officer Careers
Serving your country is one of the greatest ways to give back to your nation. Acting in leadership roles, military officers lead Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, or Sailors in our nation’s defense. Most officer positions require a four-year college degree, which equips students with the critical decision-making skills needed to plan and direct military operations.
