The Minor in Leadership is designed for those students who desire to enhance their leadership competencies and expand their knowledge and understanding of leadership with the goal of becoming influential citizens. This interdisciplinary minor allows students to customize their plan of study to address their needs, experiences, and interests.
Each student must successfully complete PSYC 1002 (Adaptive Leadership) and PSYC 4000 (Advanced Studies in Leadership). The leadership advisor may grant exceptions.
In addition to these two required courses, students are required to complete three (3) three-hour elective courses in a given track that will enhance their leadership competencies and/or contribute to their understanding of leadership. The leadership advisor must approve all elective courses included in the student’s program of study.
Students are expected to engage in extracurricular activities and external programs that provide them with opportunities to exercise leadership. This component of the program is designed to broaden students’ understanding of leadership and engage them as citizens. Service learning participation is highly recommended for all leadership minors.
