The certificate in Leadership Studies prepares graduates for problem-solving within organizations and communities. Emphasis is placed on conflict resolution, evidence-based reasoning, and ethical perspectives on leadership.
Students will be introduced to major academic studies of leadership, including research on problem-solving in the work-place, political psychology and professional ethics. We integrate our students' major studies and professional goals, culminating in a project on leadership challenges in their future endeavors. Relevant professional skills, like writing policy, will also be covered.
Leadership Studies is an interdisciplinary program, drawing on psychology, sociology, communication studies, political science, philosophy, and other fields.
