Leadership Studies Concentration

The Leadership Studies Program is interdisciplinary in nature and is a significant benefit to students in all areas of study. Courses are designed to give students a practical and theoretical grasp of leadership on the basic assumption that leadership can be learned and, therefore, taught. The program has a unique approach to leadership that combines practical theories and opportunities for students to study the characteristics of authority, leadership, social and role dynamics, political processes and the values that orient their careers.
