Minor in Leadership Studies

The 18-hour interdisciplinary program is designed for undergraduate students wanting to gain leadership skills that can be applied to their involvement with co-curricular activities while they are pursuing their degree. Students will complete the minor with knowledge and experience so they may be better prepared to become leaders in both their professional careers and communities.  This will be accomplished by offering students opportunities to practically apply what they have learned in the classroom into their real-world experiences.  In this program, students will interact with partners from the university, local, and state level leadership to role model, instruct, and mentor undergraduate students wanting to make a positive impact in their communities.  

The curriculum includes courses specifically focused on leadership development, electives that are identified as leadership focused from a variety of disciplines, and will require completion of an internship (capstone seminar) that will have students put what they have learned in their leadership coursework into practical action.

Students pursuing the leadership minor will need to be actively pursuing a bachelor's degree and will need to earn a "C" or higher in each of the core leadership courses and in the 6 hours of approved leadership electives. In addition, they will need to have 6 hours of residency at Arkansas Tech University.
