Leadership Studies Courses

With the many courses offered by the Leadership Studies Program, every year students can take a different class. There are courses for students just discovering their leadership potential and courses for seasoned campus leaders to deepen their skill set. Every course includes lessons on the intersection of leadership and social identities, and multiple courses focus on internationality.

Over 90 courses serve as electives in the leadership certificate and are listed in the Curriculum Map (PDF). Below are the courses delivered by leadership studies faculty.
