Leadership Development Minor
The goal of the minor is to expand a student's knowledge, skills, and understanding of specific leadership theories, concepts, models, and current leadership issues in applied settings. It is intended for students interested in a cross-disciplinary approach to gathering, interpreting, and applying knowledge about leaders and leadership practices. This minor teaches students the skills necessary to excel as leaders in their professions and help others accomplish their goals.
Students must complete 18 or more credits related to the study of leadership, three of which must be an internship experience.
