A minor in leadership studies includes a set of leadership-specific courses to learn leadership styles and effective leadership practices, along with courses in cultural and diversity understanding, communication, and social structures.

Why should I study leadership?

This minor provides learning environments outside of the classroom to practically apply and hone your leadership skills.

What can I do with this degree?

Students from a variety of majors gain from the leadership studies minor. They take their leadership insights to a wide-range of careers in business, healthcare, communications, and more.

  • Critical thinking

You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the R.E.A.L. Experience—a program specifically designed to help you gain the relevant, hands-on experience employers desire—so that when you graduate, you’ll be as impressive in practice as you are on paper.

What unique experiences or opportunities will I have?
