Does it matter what I am majoring in to declare the Leadership Minor?
No, the Leadership Minor complements any major.
What can I do with the Leadership Minor? Will it help me get a job?
The Leadership Minor will make you more marketable, most likely bringing you into
a job interview with skills that your competition does not have on their resume. You
can see a list of what some of the students that have graduated with the Leadership
Minor have done with it in our Testimonials section HERE.
Do I have to take classes in order?
While it is not required, it is recommended you do so. Taking LEAD 160: Personal
Leadership, Self-Inquiry, & Discovery is very helpful in preparing to take LEAD 350:
Leadership & Group Development, just as LEAD 350: Leadership & Group Development
can be very helpful in preparing to take LEAD 357: Leadership & the Practice of
Presence.
I am interested in taking a course but have a conflict/scheduling issues. Am I
still able to take the course?
We recommend you speak with one of the teaching staff in the Department of
Leadership Studies/your Leadership Minor advisor about setting your schedule and
any conflicts that may arise. We may be able to find a solution that accommodates
your current course schedule and your long-term plan of study.
When should I take Capstone?
It is best if Capstone is the last class you take as it completes your journey in the
Leadership Minor. It is important to note that LEAD 160: Personal Leadership, SelfInquiry, & Discoery and LEAD 350: Leadership & Group Development/LEAD 357:
Leadership & the Practice of Presence are prerequisites.
I do not think I can complete 120 Internship hours, what can I do?
Oftentimes students can complete the majority of the hours over a break and take
the class while they finish up their hours the following semester. Contact Teresa
VanHorn as soon as possible at [email protected] or 1-619-260-4760, and
have a discussion with your Leadership Minor Advisor about planning out your
schedule.
I had declared the Leadership Minor, then I changed my major and the
Leadership Minor no longer shows up on my transcript. What happened?
If you make changes to your program of study you need to make sure that you
note all of your majors and minors. Check with your Leadership Minor Advisor, they
will be able to help you navigate this.
Can I take multiple LEAD387P classes?
Yes, up to 3 credit hours, they are considered elective credits. However you cannot
take the same section twice. Make sure you check in with your Leadership Minor
Advisor if you plan to take multiple LEAD 387p: Student Leadership Practical
Experience classes.
