Courses in Leadership Studies explore the phenomena of leadership in a wide range of historical, cultural, organizational and intellectual domains. The field of Leadership Studies recognizes that leading and following are basic elements of interpersonal relationships and social organization encountered in all groups. While courses in this cluster may provide practical insights into leadership, their principle purpose is to challenge students to appreciate the complex social, psychological, ethical, and aesthetic issues facing leaders of many kinds.

Leadership Studies is neither a major nor a concentration, although contract majors may be developed by students interested in incorporating Leadership Studies into their major area of study. There is a recommended curriculum that may be completed as follows: completion of two "Cluster Course" listed below, two Leadership Studies electives, also listed below, and the capstone course, Topics in Leadership. A Leadership Studies Winter Study course may be substituted for either cluster courses or electives. Interested students should speak with the cluster chair to discuss their interest.
