The Departments of Psychology and Political Science and Public Administration and the School of Business offer an interdepartmental minor in Personnel and Organizational Leadership. This program is designed to provide the following competencies: 1) a theoretical understanding of the basic psychological processes that operate in work settings; 2) skill in establishing rapport with co‑workers; 3) skill in assessing the qualifications and performance of others; 4) skill in managing and training others; and 5) a theoretical understanding of organizational structure and the forces that influence it.
Students majoring in any subject are eligible to participate in the Personnel and Organizational Leadership minor. Those who are interested should consult with the department chair from Psychology or Political Science and Public Administration or Marketing, Management, and International Business. Since many courses in the minor have prerequisites that can be taken to meet General Education requirements, early planning will be to the student’s advantage.
