Info About Our Minor and Certificate

We are excited to announce the official approval of the Leadership Studies Certificate in addition to the Leadership Studies Minor. This Students in the Leadership Studies program will have the choice to complete the certificate (21 credits) or the minor (15 credits). Both Programs will still require completion of the following core requirements:

  • HESI 217 Introduction to Leadership
  • HESI 315 Leadership in Groups and Organizations
  • HESI 318 Applied Contextual Leadership OR HESI 418 - Special Topics in Leadership
  • HESI 417 Advance Leadership Seminar

In addition to the above requirements, the minor will require one elective from our list of preapproved elective courses. The certificate will require two electives from the same list as the minor, plus completion of our Social Action course sequence, HESI 320 Social Action Seminar (2 credits) and HESI 321 Advanced Social Action Seminar (1 credit), in which students will research and develop a social action plan using leadership models and theories, then implement and assess their plan. Read more details in the "Courses" section here on the website.
