Changes to the Leadership Studies Minor Curriculum

All students should take a moment to learn about some recent changes to the leadership studies minor. The changes were a response to student feedback over the last few years. We believe the new and improved format will allow students to more fully engage in their leadership education and development. Overall, credit hours for the minor will be reduced from 18 hours to 16 hours. This is a result of increasing LEAD 450: Senior Seminar from 2 hours to 3 hours and a reduction in elective courses from 9 hours to 6 hours. Students will still apply leadership to their majors through choosing 6 hours of electives from one broad list. These changes will affect both standard and nonprofit students. Click here to learn more.
