Welcome to Organizational Leadership!

The Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership provides an academic foundation for the professional and career-focused study of leadership principles and skills. It is specifically designed to advance the professional objectives of students who desire to complete a baccalaureate degree for career advancement and expanded job opportunities. The combination of leadership, management, and global and social-cultural perspectives provides graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide effective leadership at various levels and in a variety of occupational settings.

This degree program requires a minimum of 48 semester hours: 24 hours in the leadership core plus 24 hours in identified electives. Students must meet all University requirements for admission, continuance in the program, and graduation.
