Military History Instructor Course (MHIC)

The Military History Instructor Course (MHIC) is a 13-day/85-hour course designed to prepare ROTC cadre, state military academy cadre, and others with a military history instruction requirement to teach MQS-I (pre-commissioning) U.S. military history to cadets and candidates. The course consists of approximately 40 hours of large-group conference classes to familiarize the students with the US Army Cadet Command Military History training support package and U.S. military history in general. There are approximately 25 hours of small group seminars and student presentations that provide in-depth examinations of teaching methods and teaching aids.  Additionally, students will participate in a battlefield staff ride, have an opportunity to fire historic weapons, and attend a museum class in order to view examples of non-classroom and non-traditional methods of teaching history to undergraduates.  The course has been accredited by the NCA for three credits in History at the graduate level. It is graded on a pass/fail system, and although individual arrangements for graded assessments can be made student transcripts will still reflect the pass/fail nature of the course.
