The primary goal of the major in organizational leadership is to help students enhance their effectiveness as members of organizations through the application of systems theory to the development of projects in organizations. Through adopting a holistic view of organizations, students are better able to understand the interrelatedness of leadership, organizational structure, culture, and processes, and how these factors ultimately affect organizational performance. The major follows an intensive course of study that includes a significant online component, or is delivered fully online. Moreover, the major offers students considerable flexibility to adapt their capstone research to for-profit, non-profit, or government types of organizations.

Please note, a minimum of 120 credits is required to earn the baccalaureate degree. In addition to completing their major courses, students may transfer credits, take coursework in our AA in Liberal Arts program, or take elective courses to fulfill the required number of credits.
