The leadership minor enables students to both learn about leadership theories and concepts, while also examining and developing their own leadership behaviors. As this minor is interdisciplinary, it is a valuable complement to any Emmanuel major, as students will be able to apply leadership concepts to their specific discipline, allowing graduates to relate their experience directly to their careers after college.
