The Leadership in Student Affairs minor (15 hours) provides students with knowledge and skills related to working in higher education in areas related to student affairs programs and services. Students will take coursework in the history and foundations of student affairs, college student development theory, administrative practices, environmental management, and program design and development. Students will have a field experience (internship) working in a student affairs functional unit at the conclusion of their coursework. In addition there are a number of elective courses approved to complete the 15 hour requirement.
Courses are taught by department faculty and by adjunct faculty who are student affairs professionals on campus. This minor can complement many majors, enhance leadership and involvement on campus, strengthen transferable skills, and provide a strong background for continuing graduate study in college student affairs.
Minors can be added to programs of study through Athena under the "My Programs" menu item.
