Courses


The Leadership Studies program consists of both a minor and certificate program. Students can count up to 9 credits taken prior to being admitted to the leadership studies program toward completion of the minor or certificate. Up to six credits from a student's minor or certificate program can also be applied to a student's major, and up to six credits may be taken at an institution other than the University of Maryland, College Park. No course with an earned grade below C- may count towards the minor or certificate.
