led by ASP faculty and Washington professionals. Students select enrollment in one of two tracks: Public Policy and

Strategic Communication. Both tracks examine the same public issues and culminate in field projects assessing those

issues in light of biblical principles and Christian responsibility. Students in the Public Policy track investigate a pressing

public policy issue being debated on Capitol Hill and focus on the political difficulties policymakers face when economic,

humanitarian, and national security priorities come into conflict with one another. Students in the Strategic

Communication track engage Washington, D.C.-based organizations and communication professionals to explore the

role of strategic communication in achieving organizational goals. The aim of ASP is to help CCCU schools prepare

their students to live faithfully in contemporary society as followers of Christ. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS (ROTC) PROGRAM

Air Force ROTC (AFROTC)

AFROTC offers a variety of two-, three- and four-year scholarships which may pay up to the full cost of tuition, books,

and fees. Some scholarships may also provide a monthly stipend for personal expenses. Successful completion of

AFROTC leads to a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. No military commitment is

incurred until entering the last two years of the program (Professional Officer Course) or accepting an AFROTC

scholarship. Aerospace Studies classes and Leadership Laboratories are conducted at various times during the week on

the campuses of LMU, USC, and UCLA. For more information, contact the Department of Aerospace Studies

(AFROTC) at one of the following universities: LMU at 310-338-2770, USC at 213-740-2670, or UCLA at 310-825-

1742.

Army ROTC (AROTC)

AROTC is a program that enables students to become officers in the U.S. Army, Army Reserves, or Army National

Guard while earning a college degree. The curriculum supplements students’ academic majors by offering elective

courses ranging from leadership and management to military law. Courses are augmented with leadership laboratories

that stress practical skills such as first aid, land navigation, survival techniques, rappelling, military tactics, and scenario-

driven leadership reaction courses. Scholarships are available for two, three, and four years of academic study and are

awarded on a competitive basis. Students may select a branch of the Army in which to be commissioned from 16

specialty fields, including military intelligence, aviation, signal communications, finance, logistics, nursing, and

engineering. Prior to completion of the ROTC program, students may request to go on active duty or serve part-time

in the Army Reserves or National Guard. For more information, contact AROTC at one of the following universities:

CSUN at 818-677-7855 or UCLA at 310-825-7381.
