Missouri Western State University offers a multidisciplinary minor in Leadership. This minor is intended for those students who have interest in leadership but are not pursuing a major in which leadership is a main component. The philosophy of the minor is that students are exposed to basic concepts in leadership, complete a practicum experience in leadership, and learn about at least three areas of leadership. Two areas will have more depth requiring two courses each, and the third area requires a single course.
Some areas include courses with prerequisites. Students should carefully check prerequisites for courses when considering this minor.
