Aerospace Studies Degree Programs

Degree Program Incentives

It should be noted, however, that the Air Force offers extra scholarship money for specific technical majors.

ASU’s qualifying technical majors are:

Minor in Leadership Studies

Although cadets cannot earn a degree in Aerospace Studies, the 3rd year of Aerospace Studies courses can meet a portion of the requirements for a minor in Leadership Studies.  All the requirements for the minor are below:

Aerospace Studies 3312, 3314, Management 3300, 3 semester credit hours in History 4323, 4340, or 4361, 3 semester credit hours in Political Science 3314, 4301, or 4351, and 3 semester credit hours in Communications 3335, 3351, or 3355.

Pre-Engineering Agreement with Texas Tech University

Although Angelo State University doesn’t offer an engineering program, cadets majoring in Physics can take advantage of a Pre-Engineering Agreement with Texas Tech University’s main campus in Lubbock, TX.  The agreement allows cadets to transfer to several undergraduate programs in Texas Tech University’s College of Engineering.  As a result, those cadets will complete the Air Force ROTC curriculum at Detachment 820, Texas Tech University.
