Leadership  Minor

Print Version Print
College of Agricultural Sciences|Agricultural Education and General Agriculture



Also offered via Ecampus.

 

The Leadership minor is designed for all undergraduates interested in developing premier leadership, enhancing professional competencies, and fostering the skills necessary to meet the local, national, and international needs of our society. The Leadership minor is centered on leadership theory (education), trait/skill development (training), and application (development). It is designed to allow students to apply the course work in a relevant and relational manner.

Specifically, the course work focuses on major theories of leadership including contingency, path-goal, leader-member exchange theories as well as transformational, authentic, team, and servant leadership. Within each theory and type of leadership, students will be challenged to consider leadership ethics, leadership culture, gender in leadership, and integration of leadership into personal, civic, and social change. In addition, the elective courses allow students to pursue the development of trait and skill competencies necessary for employment in their chosen field. Students will then have the opportunity to directly apply their learning through a leadership internship, service learning project, or research opportunity.
