The University of Houston, in collaboration with Rice University, offers scholarships that lead to a commission as a Naval Officer, as well as a minor in Naval Science.

Students enroll in the Navy Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (NROTC) program as scholarship or non-scholarship students. Sophomores may apply for the optional two-year program that aims to provide a scholarship for the student’s junior and senior year.

The Department of Naval Science is administered by a senior U.S. Navy officer, assisted by officers and enlisted personnel of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.


The Naval Science courses offered by the University of Houston are taught at Rice University. Advising for the minor is available at the following location on the Rice campus
