The nonprofit leadership minor allows students to learn about the important role of nonprofit organizations in addressing social issues and interests in a democratic society, and participating in the formulation and implementation of public policy. Through this minor, students will become aware of the many and diverse career opportunities in the nonprofit sector, in areas such as the arts, social services, education, health care, the environment, policy advocacy, and international relief and development, and they will learn the skills, knowledge and challenges of leadership in this sector. This minor will prepare students for entry-level jobs in nonprofit management and for graduate study in nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, and related fields. The minor in nonprofit leadership requires 15 hours of coursework, which must include 3 credit hours of required courses and 12 additional credit hours from a list of pre-approved courses.
