Holistic Leadership is an integrative field of study. Students learn skills that are important to lead individuals, groups, and large organized systems in a time of change and transformation. By combining holistic approaches, interpersonal communication skills, organizational learning, and systems thinking, students learn to lead within their own personal and professional spheres. Students also learn to see personal, group, and larger systems through multiple lenses and to apply critical thinking, inquiring, and reflective analysis to leadership. Students are introduced to both western and nonwestern leadership principles and models and also to the art of leading system change and transformation. The Holistic Leadership Program differs from many traditional graduate leadership programs in its emphasis upon the body/mind/spirit or the whole person and/or whole system approach to leading.
The leadership program offers a 36-credit master’s degree in holistic leadership. Graduates of the Salve Regina holistic counseling program may earn a 12-credit Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies or a 12-credit Certificate of Graduate Studies in holistic leadership. Applicants to the holistic leadership certificate program who already have a master’s or an undergraduate (in some instances) degree from an accredited university other than Salve Regina may be eligible for admissions into a Certificate of Graduate Studies program in holistic leadership. Upon review of a potential student’s application, and on a case-by-case basis, applicants may be required to take additional holistic foundation courses in order to be fully matriculated into the CAGS and CGS programs.
