Cultural Understanding & Language Proficiency | 3 Weeks
As an Army ROTC cadet, the world is your classroom. Every year, hundreds of cadets travel the globe, spend up to three weeks immersed in foreign cultures, learn more about how other others around the world view the U.S. and, in the process, learn more about themselves through CULP. You will have the opportunity to compete for immersion in more than 40 countries in order to expose yourself to everyday life and language in a different culture. You can experience three different venues during immersion including humanitarian service, host nation military-to-military contact, and education on the social, cultural, and historical aspects of the country.
