  • Leadership

    This interdisciplinary minor, in conjunction with the successful completion of the degree program, provides the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary to assume leadership, supervisory or management positions in private companies and nonprofit organizations.

    About this Minor

    Because the minor is interdisciplinary, it draws on the expertise of faculty and staff in colleges across campus, which may include Agricultural and Life Sciences, Business Administration, Health and Human Performance, Journalism and Communications, and Liberal Arts and Sciences.

    The minor is open to all students, although admission is by application. A cumulative 3.0 GPA is necessary and the minor must be added before a student completes 90 credits. Students must earn a minimum grade of B in AEC 3414 Leadership Development to continue in the minor.
