Leadership Studies Minor

Leadership Studies Minor Overview

The KU Leadership Studies Minor (LSM) believes that leadership is a process, not an outcome. Students who want to make progress on issues they care about in their personal, community, and professional lives can study the processes of leadership in an interdisciplinary minor, housed in the Communication Studies Department.  The KU Leadership Studies Minor (LSM) provides a powerful experiential learning process by integrating leadership ideas explored in the classroom with extensive fieldwork. The 18-credit hour minor is best suited for students engaged in co-curricular leadership activities who want to illuminate what they experience with knowledge gained from investigating leadership principles in breadth and depth. The LSM will accept a limited number of new students each semester as the Minor involves small seminar classes and more than 150 hours of leadership experiences in the field. 

For more about the program, Leadership Minor students created this informational video.
