The minor in Public Leadership allows students to examine pressing issues (the global environment, democratization and human rights, crime and the penal system, diversity and affirmative action, poverty and inequality, and the quality of public education) facing leaders today. The minor directs students to think critically about the viable solutions needed to solve problems which require effective leadership for the public good. The Public Leadership minor engages students in learning about leadership for the public good and effective citizenship. Additionally, the minor will serve as a feeder for the school’s graduate program.
Objectives and Learning Outcomes
The minor in Public Leadership has the following objectives:
Requirements: 15 approved credits, at least 9 of which are 300- or 400-level. All courses taken for a minor must be completed with a minimum grade of "C-". A minimum C (2.00) cumulative grade point average across all courses used to satisfy the minor is also required. Notes: No more than 6 credits may overlap between the major and the Public Leadership Minor, unless otherwise approved by the major department. Additionally, courses completed in one minor may not be used to satisfy the requirements in another minor.
At least 3 credits from one of the following Anchor courses:
The remaining 12 credits will be selected by the student from a list of approved signature courses and electives. A credit-bearing experiential learning option for which a grade is earned, e.g., internship, study abroad, research project, etc. can count as part of the remaining 12 credits. The experiential learning option must be linked to public leadership and approved in advance.
