For those interested in further applied learning regarding personal leadership development, pursuing a minor, a certificate program, or additional coursework in Leadership is an excellent opportunity. Below are a few ways to continue making meaning of significant student leadership experiences through the classroom and beyond.
The Certificate in Experiential Leadership is a cross-curricular program open to students of any major designed to strategically weave together one’s academic course of study with substantive leadership practice in the university setting.
Through participation in this certificate program, students navigate through three domains of leadership learning: Examination, Exploration, and Engagement. Through Examination experiences, students cultivate areas of personal interest, identifying opportunities where they can further invest in leadership. Through Exploration experiences, students contribute more intentionally to organizations, programs, and departments through increased collaboration with their peers as they develop a deeper understanding of leadership concepts and practices.
The Leadership Practicum Course empowers students to examine leadership experiences in a cohesive and strategic way; offering them the opportunity to imaginatively plan for, participate in, and articulate their leadership both during and after their time at Baylor. For more information or to indicate an interest in gaining course credit for service as a Community Leader or Welcome Week Leader, please email email@example.com
This 19-hour minor is designed for students with career interests in outdoor leadership within a variety of settings. It may also interest students who desire to develop personal leadership skills that are transferable to any field. Courses and field experiences provide an introductory and foundational set of skills and abilities required of outdoor leaders who serve in assistant or entry-level roles in the delivery and oversight of outdoor education experiences.
The Undergraduate Leadership Minor is an inter-disciplinary program designed to prepare students for leadership in their chosen vocation. Students will complete 18 credit hours as they are encouraged to think critically and apply analytical skills to develop their own understanding of leadership and how they can commit to a life of service in their professional fields.
