The GMC consists of four 1-credit courses, normally completed during the freshman and sophomore years. The 100-level portion of the GMC examines the Air Force in the contemporary world. The 200-level portion of the GMC focuses on a study of Air Power through the jet age, a historical review of the employment of air power in military and nonmilitary operations, and the evolution of air power concepts and doctrine.
Students in the three-year program must be concurrently enrolled in both the freshman (100-level) and the sophomore (200-level) courses each semester of their sophomore year.
Portions of the GMC may be waived for students with prior military experience or for students who transfer from another reserve officer training program.
