Leadership Studies at CCU

Most collegiate leadership programs consist of academic classes only. CCU's Leadership program requires that you learn through both academic classes and real-world leadership experience driven by Christian principles, theory, and ethics. We find that the real-world application of the leadership theory learned in class reinforces that theory and catalyzes your growth intellectually, physically, and spiritually. People with a minor in leadership are common. Those with a minor in leadership and real-world experience, shaped by a Christian worldview, are priceless!

A minor offers a concentrated area of coursework to supplement your major field of study. It is designed to enhance the range of topics and knowledge for a well-rounded student. It can provide exposure to important concepts that help students prepare for a fast-paced workplace.
