The leadership minor has been created for qualified students who seek to grow their servant leadership of others across broad contexts. With dual emphasis on both theory and practice, the minor gives students an opportunity to develop and refine their philosophy of leadership and prepare them to be successful as servant leaders. This minor is not available to communication or psychology majors who choose the leadership emphasis located within their respective majors.

  1. Define leadership in various contexts or disciplines.
  2. Integrate Christian perspectives on current, past and future models of leadership.
