Leadership Studies Minor

Leadership Studies Minor

Our campus recognizes your need to gain real-world skills and hands-on leadership competencies. These can be earned through a Leadership Studies Minor, which is a complement to any degree option. During these courses, students will work towards personal leadership development and a practical framework to further self-awareness, values and purpose.

Most freshmen on the K-State Salina campus have the opportunity to take the first class of the minor, introduction to leadership concepts, as part of their curriculum. This is an excellent way for new students to engage in a collaborative learning community and explore leadership concepts and frameworks.
