Graduate Advising


Welcome to Organizational Leadership!

Please watch this short 14-minute video to gain an overview of the Masters of Arts in Organizational Leadership, and advising: https://youtu.be/IvvWXjlHYnc.

Our master’s program consists of six core and four elective classes. The core classes provide a foundation in organizational leadership while the electives allow you to focus in a specific area or take courses that best fit your professional goals. The Graduate School requires each student to file a Program Form at the beginning of your studies and will place a registration hold on accounts that do not have Program Forms on file. To preclude the registration hold, we have students file a Program Form knowing we will have to change this form. During your final semester, we will update your Program Form to match the courses that you actually took.

We recommend you take LEAD 500 first. You are not required to take the courses in a specific order, but we do advise that you identify early which electives you would like to take, so you can take them as they are offered.

If you have any advising questions, please contact either Mrs. Fallon Willoughby or Dr. John Baker.

Advising for the graduate Certificate is the same as above with students required to take LEAD 500, LEAD 600, and two electives, usually from their master’s program, with approval from the Organizational Leadership Advisors.

For a certificate or undergraduate advising, please contact your undergraduate advisor.
