Courses in MOEP: Air Force Officer Education Program

Credit toward graduation from LSA.

The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts does not grant credit toward graduation for any courses offered through the Officer Education Program except for those courses which are cross-listed in other academic units (effective September 1, 1971) or courses that have a University Course cross-listing. These latter courses count as non-LSA course work if the cross-listed offering falls outside LSA academic departments or programs.

Course of Study

Students enroll in one course in Air Force during each term of participation in the program for a total of 16 credits distributed as follows:

  • Basic course sequence (first and second years): AERO 101, 102, 201, 202 (4 credits).
  • Advanced course sequence (third and fourth years): AERO 310, 311, 410, 411 (12 credits).

These course sequences attempt to develop an understanding of the global mission and organization of the United States Air Force, the historical development of air power and its support of national objectives, concepts of leadership, management responsibilities and skills, national defense policy, and the role of the military officer in our society.
