Leadership Studies Minor

Applying to the program

The program accepts only a small number of new students each semester because the Leadership Studies Minor involves small seminar classes and more than 150 hours of leadership-related field experience.


Students must be enrolled in or have completed LDST 201: Introduction to Leadership and LDST 202: Introduction to Leadership Applications at the time of application to the Leadership Studies Minor.
