LTC Robert Haines, Program Director


The University of Scranton’s Military Science Department, also known as the Royal Warrior Battalion, was named the top officer-producing program in the Second Brigade and was documented in the top 15% of 272 programs in nation for 2005. It was also selected as “Best Unit” for 1999-2000 in the Eastern ROTC Region, and the department established itself in the top 10% of all 270 ROTC programs in 1998.

The Royal Warrior Battalion has a flexible ROTC program that can be tailored to most students’ needs, and classes are offered on campus. Two- and four-year programs are available, both of which can lead to a commission as an officer in the United States Army (for qualified students). Most students take one course per semester of the basic course program (freshman and sophomore years), and one course per semester of the advanced courses (junior and senior years).

The Royal Warrior Battalion enjoys outstanding results in awarding scholarships. In 2007, 126 students were enrolled in the Royal Warrior Battalion, with 96 scholarship recipients.
