Master of Science in Leadership
The Master of Science in Leadership (MSL) program is designed to be flexible and can be completed in two years with part-time study. Students are allowed up to six years to complete the program.
Students are required to complete 30 credit hours (ten three-credit courses).
With satisfactory grades and advisor approval, a student may transfer up to six graduate credits of similar coursework from a previous accredited institution.
Students are required to meet with their advisor (Nate Pearson, PhD) before beginning a program of study.
MSL students will:
demonstrate the development of their own ethical and socially just leadership philosophy with foundations in self and global awareness
demonstrate the ability to lead an implementation of change by effectively leading a high-performance team, including efficient conflict resolution
become critical consumers and producers of evidence-based decision making, demonstrating their knowledge through the construction of a research-based leadership plan
demonstrate an integration of knowledge gained in the MSL program to solve problems or issues
Students in the Master of Science in Leadership program complete a Capstone Project.
Prior to registering for the Capstone class and regardless of participation in the Commencement ceremony, all students must apply for graduation.
