The Leadership Studies Minor
The Honors College Leadership Studies Minor encourages students to study diverse leadership theories and analyze themselves to improve their leadership skills. Through the Leadership Studies minor, I acquired several new leadership skills and self-management techniques that I use personally and professionally.
- I used my knowledge of leadership in different contexts to secure my internship with Microsoft. I was able to demonstrate my ability to effectively work with diverse groups of people, a skill essential to success in the technology industry.
- I applied the skills gained from the minor's foundational class, Leadership Theory and Practice, to manage a team of five other students as the head of the Honors College's IT staff.
- I tested and applied several self-management techniques in order to improve my memory and learning skills.
