LEAD Program Announces Minor in Leadership Studies
Wes Wynens, PhD
Director of Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Program
Starting in the fall semester of 2011, students will have an exciting new opportunity to pursue a minor in Leadership Studies. The minor is designed to complement a variety of Georgia Tech degree programs and will give students practical, real-world experience in leadership and leadership development - a key skill for thriving in the 21st century.
Designed for students entering their second year, the minor in Leadership Studies will provide students with an in-depth knowledge of leadership theory, skills, experience, and application through a rigorous program of study that is multi-disciplinary in nature. Initially, the minor will be comprised of two tracks: one in public policy and one in management. In the fall of 2012, a third track in international leadership will be offered. In order for students to enroll in this minor, they must have at least 30 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater, complete the application process and be accepted into the leadership studies minor. Once accepted, students will be prescribed a 15 credit hour course of study specific to leadership studies. This is in addition to satisfying the credit hour requirements for a bachelor's degree in their declared major. Each course counting toward the leadership studies minor must be completed with a grade of C or above, with the overall required GPA in the courses counting toward the minor being a 2.75 or better.
