Leadership Studies in the Department of EL

Welcome to the Leadership Studies Minor Website

Effective leadership is vital to growth and success in a democratic society. The minor in Leadership Studies is a multi-disciplinary program that focuses on the study of leadership from various perspectives and contexts. It is designed to provide you with learning opportunities to develop your leadership potential.

You experience the challenges and consequences of leading through classroom participation and collaborative projects that emphasize structured self-growth. Whatever options you choose, you will find that the goal is to keep learning about yourself...and about others...who lead. (Student Learning Outcomes)

Leadership development opportunities include:

  • Understanding leadership theory and practice from multidimensional perspectives
  • Engagement in leadership experiences and challenges in a variety of contexts
  • Understanding the consequences of leadership decisions
