Minor in Leadership

Leadership MinorLeadership Minor

The purpose of the Minor in Leadership is to further students’ development as leaders through curricular work. The minor will provide a formal curricular structure that offers leadership development opportunities to students who wish to work in organizations—whether businesses, government agencies, or nonprofits. Its courses will provide the conceptual and analytical foundations about the nature and the practice of leadership to supplement students’ practical experience and co-curricular skill development activities.

The minor features a multidisciplinary approach—an introduction and a capstone course that will frame the insights that students will gain from a variety of relevant options that will suit their own interests. This structure will help them to connect and integrate the insights of a variety of disciplines in understanding the complex phenomenon of leadership.
