Leadership Studies Minor

Electives


LSM students: Your initial term at KU determines the number of elective requirements you will need for this minor. Students who started at KU Summer 2021 or earlier must take three electives (Community Development, Ethics, Leadership, Diversity & Culture). Students with the initial KU term of Fall 2021 and after may take two electives (One course that engages an Ethical mindset and one course focused on Understanding Diverse Cultures, Communities, & Identities). If you have questions, please send an email to: leadershipstudies@ku.edu.


The courses listed below are pre-approved electives for the Leadership Studies Minor. This is not an exhaustive list since new courses are offered each semester that may be ideal as LSM electives. If there is a course you would like to use to fulfill your elective requirements and it is not listed below, please contact us at leadershipminor@ku.edu for details on the petition process.

At least one of the three electives must be 300 level or above.
