Leadership Studies, University Interdisciplinary Programs

24 credits

Introduction

The Leadership Minor provides an opportunity to learn about leadership theories, research, and perspectives to help students develop competencies to benefit their lives and the lives of others. Students will have the opportunity to practice skills associated with leadership, reflect on their strengths and goals, and how they can build leadership capacity. As leadership is a journey and not a task, students will also explore how to develop as leaders beyond the classroom and over one’s lifetime.

Why Consider a Leadership Studies Minor?

The Leadership Studies Minor provides a focused course of study and reflective practice in leadership that enables students to combine formal learning of leadership foundations and leadership skills. The minor enables students to develop knowledge, skills and experience in leadership that are transferable to a wide range of civic and career settings.
