Enroll in the Minor

The minor in leadership studies shares the same three core courses in leadership, speech communication and organizational theory as the certificate in leadership studies. In addition, students choose six credit hours of leadership electives from 26 courses offered across 14 academic departments and programs in five colleges. These elective courses are among those included in the leadership certificate.The minor requires the completion of 15 credits through:

  • Three courses in leadership, speech communication and organizational theory
  • Six credits of elective courses in leadership

Nine courses must be at 300 level or above, at least 9 credits cannot be used to meet any other requirements, and courses cannot be taken pass/fail.
