Please note: Entry of new students into this program is suspended as of Spring 2023.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Organizational Leadership  trains leaders to apply theory and evidence-based research to promote, strengthen, and change community and organizational networks.

This program promotes career development by:

  • Promoting cultural, social, and political literacy as it applies to the development of leadership skills.
  • Developing applied business skills in leadership and project management.
  • Strengthening interpersonal and organizational communication skills in both writing and speech.

As a result, the program supports careers in training and development, community and nonprofit administration, higher education, project management, and general business administration.

The B.S. in Organizational Leadership is open to all students. The program requires completion of at least 120 credit hours, and up to 72 credits may be awarded for coursework previously completed for the Applied Associate degree. Students enrolled in the program will also be required to complete the General Education Program (GEP) requirements. Many of the courses required for the B.S. in Organizational Leadership will also satisfy GEP requirements.
