In collaboration with the Department of Student Engagement and Leadership, the Department of Human Development and Psychological Counseling offers an undergraduate minor in Leadership Studies.

Students can receive a Minor in Leadership Studies by completing 18 hours in leadership and related courses. The requirements to complete the minor include a Principles of Leadership course, a Senior Capstone Leadership Seminar, and 12 additional hours made up of courses that are related to the study or process of leadership. Those additional courses might relate to the contexts of leadership (e.g., understanding groups, organizations, or communities), skills associated with leadership (e.g., communication, management, facilitation) or the process of leadership (e.g., ethics, group decision-making). The Leadership Studies Minor takes an interdisciplinary approach and allows the student to draw from a variety of disciplines to study the process of leadership.
