Humanities and Leadership

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MA in Humanities and Leadership graduate degree is offered in a three semesterùone full yearùprogram that challenges traditional notions of leadership studies. Our investigations look to the humanities for strong visions of leadership. Relying heavily on ideas and methods that emerge mainly from literature, art, music, and history, we encourage a broad and humane understanding of leadership, distinguishing it in part from more "scientific" studies in management. We initiate a lifelong process of exploration and questioning, linking the intuitive creative processes to the learning of leadership skills. The momentum built up in the year of classes and the research and writing of a thesis encourages our students to keep the process of learning alive in the home, in the workplace, and in the world at large.
