Study Abroad

Through the Cultural Understanding and Leadership Program (CULP), the Army recognizes the need for young leaders to develop more cultural awareness and foreign language proficiency skills. Now more than ever, cultural awareness training is a vital component of the ROTC curriculum. Overseas immersions help educate future leaders in ways the classroom cannot, providing experience with different lifestyles, economic standing, and world perspective.

Cadets have the opportunity to train with foreign militaries, teach English classes, travel to cultural heritage sites, or conduct humanitarian missions. Every year Cadets from Tarleton and universities around the country travel in small groups led by senior leader cadre, often in conjunction with a civilian agency or non-governmental agency. The deployment, which includes a five-day Soldier readiness process, typically lasts one month. For more information about CULP please visit Cadet Command website.
