The Bachelor of Arts degree in Leadership Studies features a six-course (18 credit hours) core centered on content directly related to leadership.
To complement this leadership core, Leadership Studies majors complete the program of study by choosing seven additional content courses from a wide range of areas including accounting, business administration, criminal justice, math, mass communications, political science, psychology, and sociology.
Students may shape the program to best serve their interests, needs, and career goals.
This program is structured for students who may have already earned a two-year degree or have completed some courses toward a four-year degree.
By combining the flexibility and convenience of online coursework with the high quality and personal touch characteristic of Piedmont classes, this program is designed to meet the needs of students who may not be able to regularly attend classes on our Demorest or Athens campuses.
This program provides a pathway for working adults, students caring for family members, and other adult learners to the intellectual enrichment and career advancement associated with a bachelor’s degree.
