Minor in Leadership Studies

Study contemporary leadership — a rich area of study and a rewarding path for students as they plan their own careers.

Whether effective or not, examples of leadership are all around us—at the national level, in our workplaces, and in local settings.

Students in this program first examine the theory, evolution, practice and dynamics for leadership in contemporary society. Next, they study how to observe behaviors, recognize values, communicate effectively and manage others – all while keeping diversity and inclusion in mind.

Finally, students apply what they’ve learned – and use their interpersonal and problem-solving skills – through internships, volunteering and experiential work under the guidance of faculty sponsors.
