Standard Focus - Leadership Studies Minor
Developed as the first model for the leadership studies minor, the standard focus allows students to select electives that can relate with their academic major. Students will complete the four core classes (see Course Requirements) and have the opportunity to select one course from the following three elective categories.
You must take three credit hours from each of the following elective categories.
Introductory ethical concepts, social and political philosophy, ethical theories, and ethics as applied to specific professions.
Management and organizational theories and their application in organizational and industrial settings.
The application of leadership skills and theories to specific groups, organizations, fields of work, or academic disciplines; knowledge of various cultures; leadership communication.
Students can work with their major academic advisor to see if any of the elective courses will fulfill the requirements for their academic major, as well as the leadership studies minor. For more information, please set up an advising appointment or contact our Student Services Team by going to the Advising page.
Students interested in taking additional classes taught by Leadership Studies faculty can explore the courses in Additional Courses.
