What can a minor in leadership do for you?

Taking an active role in leadership comes with many challenges.

Be prepared to face these head-on ethically and competently with a minor in leadership.

Classes in philosophy, communications, management and psychology will help you gain a better understanding of group dynamics, ethics, personal interactions and other critical issues through this interdisciplinary minor.

These skills are important for virtually any career you'll want to pursue.

Take advantage of your natural tendency to be a leader. With an interdisciplinary minor in leadership, you'll examine the qualities of a good leader and gain needed skills to position yourself well for future opportunities.

A variety of classes, in areas such as philosophy, communications, management and psychology, will focus your attention, in a concentrated way, on a key goal of a Susquehanna liberal arts and science education-preparing you for a lifetime of leadership in a diverse and interdependent world.

You'll learn how to work effectively within a team and solve problems, evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader, become more responsible for personal and interpersonal actions, and recognize how you can continue to grow and develop as a member of numerous communities within society.

How will this happen?

You'll be required to serve in at least one leadership position on campus. Examples include, but aren't limited to:

  • Becoming a resident assistant
  • Participating in the Student Government Association
  • Being president of a club or an officer of a fraternity or sorority
  • Serving as captain of a sports team
  • Participating in ROTC

The leadership minor will conclude in a final leadership seminar class. In it, you'll reflect on your experience as a leader on campus by engaging in workshop activities and learning how to further enhance those skills beyond Susquehanna University.
