Careers for Marine Corps Officers
A Marine Officer is first and foremost a leader of Marines. An old adage in the Marine Corps is every Marine is a rifleman. As such, a great deal of initial officer training is focused on infantry training. Marine Option midshipmen will attend Officer Candidate School in Quantico, VA for six weeks during the summer following their junior year. Upon graduating from OU, the Marine Option midshipmen will receive their commission as a Second Lieutenant of Marines.
