Leadership Minor

American Military Leadership emphasizes total competence in one’s field, coupled with an absolute respect for ethics. It is based on the knowledge of people, history, and current management practices. The Military Science Department offers a minor in Leadership that capitalizes on the classroom instruction offered in the courses listed below provided by several University departments. The minor also offers unique field experiences for students to apply leadership skills in demanding but safe and controlled training activities. The minor is open to all University students in the advanced military science courses.

A minor in Leadership requires 18 credits, at least six of which must be approved electives outside of the Military Science department. The student must take MS 301 , MS 302 , MS 401  and MS 402 , plus courses from the list of approved electives. They must also complete a University or Army internship approved by the instructor of record, the Professor of Military Science.  Depending on the credit value of the internship, the student may choose 9-11 credits from the following list of approved courses.  (Courses counted towards a student’s major may not be counted toward the first 15 credits of the minor.)

The student must receive a grade of C or better in each course in order for it to count towards the minor, and the student must have an average of 3.0 in the courses counting toward the minor.  MS 480  and MS 481  cannot be used as required courses for the minor and as the leadership internships.
