Leadership Studies Program at Hardin-Simmons
University is a multi-disciplinary academic minor with students and
faculty from all areas of campus. All organizations throughout
society need vibrant and effective leadership. They require
leaders who have the insight to identify opportunities and threats and
the abilities to rally others around them in pursuit of a common cause.
Leadership studies students study the rules, principles, and theories of
leadership in a diverse set of academic courses. From traditional
management and organization theory to entrepreneurship and venture
creation, students are exposed to many of the same concepts that are
taught in business schools and touted by business consultants. In
addition, leadership studies students also examine the concepts of
leadership, teamwork, and organization from a liberal arts perspective.
Leadership in theatre, critical thinking and problem solving, ethics,
leadership in film, great leaders of history, cults and charismatic
leaders, and quantitative analysis classes help introduce core concepts
in different ways.
As with tennis, racquetball, golf, karate, and other skill-based sports,
true proficiency in leadership is developed from more than just a formal study of
concepts. To excel in sports and leadership, students must
practice their games with the intention of getting better.
Leadership studies students practice developing leadership and
organization skills in a number of workshop and skills classes.
Skill-based courses include model united nations, creativity, outdoor
leadership, leading teams, and a variety of leadership workshop and
travel classes. Students also develop skills and confidence
through a variety of out-of-class and extracurricular activities. The bike ride across Texas is a workshop class--it
gives students a chance to practice implementing what they learn in
their classes while carrying out a real project.
