Course Description

What makes a great leader? This question has been of central interest to social psychologists and has inspired a wide range of theoretical and applied psychology research since the 1930s. Grounded in this research, PSYC 3210 will have a strong applied emphasis, encouraging students to explore fundamental issues of leadership through mini-cases, discussion, readings, self-reflection, and group exercises. Students will learn how to assess leadership situations and how best to hone and apply their own leadership skills. Relevant leaders from the community will occasionally be invited to address the class.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in PSYC 1115 and 1215; or a minimum "C-" grade in BUSM 2200.
