  • and social services. 

Critical skills for success in every career

No matter what career path you choose, your minor in leadership studies will be a great asset with many opportunities and benefits. The need for leadership is greater than ever in an increasingly complex world of cultural, technological and global change. You’ll gain a theoretical and practical knowledge of leadership and develop skills to help motivate and inspire others to greater performance.

The minor consists of 18 hours of required coursework, which includes an introduction to ethics, industrial and organizational psychology, principles of leadership, and nine hours of elective courses.
