The Certificate in Leadership Studies

The Certificate in Leadership Studies is designed to be a "value-added" experience to any major at Marietta College. Students can complete this certificate during their first two years in college. The leadership certificate is particularly popular with majors that require substantial time commitment (e.g., Accounting). It focuses on the basics of leadership development – the core courses, two of the leadership practicum courses, and an elective. However, students in the leadership certificate still have an opportunity to participate in many of the co-curricular activities open to all McDonough Scholars, including being an EXCEL Workshop leader, simulations, and service projects.
