Leadership Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Schools/Departments

The leadership studies minor is open to all undergraduate students regardless of major. With this minor, students develop the skills and capacities to recognize relevant theories and styles of effective leadership. Students also develop the ability to critically assess, reflect, and learn from their own leadership experiences, inside the classroom and beyond. The minor is specifically designed to provide opportunities for students to practice and hone four key attributes of professional and civic leadership: integrity, initiative, collaboration, and decision-making skills. The minor includes the introductory course LEAD 101  and the capstone course LEAD 401, which is designed to integrate and crystallize what students have learned about leadership throughout their Widener experience. For more information contact the Oskin Leadership Institute.
