SDSU Leadership Minor

SDSU plays an important role in developing leaders in many significant civic and professional fields. Open to students from all majors, the Leadership Minor examines leadership systematically from several critical perspectives and allows students to select courses that reflect their own academic and professional aspirations. Central to the minor is increasing students' self-awareness through the exploration of strengths, values, beliefs, culture, and identity. The curriculum is grounded in ethical and relational approaches to leadership, and a social change perspective.
