About the Leadership Minor
The university-level Leadership Minor provides students the skills and knowledge needed to become leaders demonstrated by an ability to apply ethical frameworks to varied settings and situations, respect others, and do what is right even if it is more difficult. The minor in leadership focuses on leadership practice with a grounding in leadership theory. Thus, the minor’s 15 credit hour curriculum consists of six hours of foundational courses in leadership theory, six hours of practice-focused courses that allow students to develop depth or breadth in areas that support their professional goals, a three hour capstone experience that requires a leadership practicum, and a required reflection. Undergraduate Studies’ units have modified services available to students enrolled via distance education, at branch campuses, or at other instructional locations.
