PhD courses in Leadership Studies

Doctoral students in the PhD by Special Arrangement will be required to complete up to 15 units of graduate level coursework, a candidacy exam and Dissertation.

Once you have the approval of the Leadership Department to apply, you will work with your supervisor to complete the Special Arrangement Program Proposal (PDF). This includes course selection.

Course selection can include electives outside the Leadership program, and are selected with your supervisor to achieve the research objectives.

Directed Study or Pro Forma (PDF) coursework can also be undertaken. This format allows students to engage in more detailed research in a particular area with a faculty member with a specific academic expertise.
