Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Information

The minor in social change leadership offers students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills related to the theory and practice of leadership across various contexts. The minor is designed to complement a wide range of academic majors to better prepare students for professional and personal success post-graduation. The social change approach to leadership focuses on examining the intersection of social justice, ethics, and collaboration in the practice of leadership in order to promote positive social change. The minor focuses on developing critical self-reflection, analytical skills, and communication skills through the application of leadership in various contexts including student organizations, service learning, internships, and a capstone project.

Students must complete 18 semester hours for this minor and are urged to complete CAHE 100 and EPFE 302 as early as possible. Elective courses for the minor are chosen to complement the student’s background, interests, and career plans, and, in some instances help satisfy knowledge domain requirements in the general education program. The cumulating course for the minor is CAHE 498, in which students will develop and implement a capstone project. The capstone project could be an intensive case study, research paper, action research project, or other scholarly work in social change leadership.
