The minor in Leadership Studies is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge, skills, and experiences to fulfill future community-based and business and leadership roles. Planned to complement any major at ETSU, the minor consists of 21 credits and six experiences for a portfolio. Once the student has officially declared the intent to participate in the minor, seeking advisement from the minor’s program advisor is strongly encouraged. It is recommended that a student begin work on the portfolio as soon as possible. Assignment of a community/campus leadership mentor is ideally determined by the end of the junior year.
Two courses are required of all students in the minor, HDAL 2110 and HDAL 4467/5467 . These courses meet the required competency in leadership and management. Fifteen credits are to be taken from the prescribed core competency areas below. Nine (9) credit hours of the total minor must be Upper Division Courses (3000-4000 level). Additional information can be obtained from the Department of Teaching and Learning.
