The Minor in Leadership Studies


The Leadership Studies Minor is designed to be a "value-added" experience to any major at Marietta College. Students are encouraged to combine their professional interests with their personal leadership development goals. The minor requires students to have a hands-on experience before they graduate. Students are expected to tailor the experiential education component (internship, study-abroad, service project) to fit their career plans. A political science major, for instance, may spend a semester in Washington, D.C., as part of his/her major and leadership minor requirements. A management major might choose to intern at a multinational corporation in order to gain experience in managing complex organizations. A Spanish major planning to attend graduate school might want to spend a semester in Latin America as part of a study-abroad experience. A leadership faculty will work with you to build an experience that will enhance your leadership skills, while at the same time addressing your career plans.
