The Army Specialized Training Program was a training program instituted by the United States Army during World War II at a number of American universities to meet wartime demands for junior officers and soldiers with technical skills.
The Army Specialized Training Program provided participants with a demanding schedule. Participants took approximately 25 class-time hours per quarter. Coursework was offered in engineering, science, medicine, dentistry, personnel psychology, and 34 different foreign languages. Upon completion of the program, participants were then deployed.
