Why ODU for Leadership (Interdisciplinary Studies)?

Today's workplace needs leaders who are highly skilled in areas such as reasoning, communications and analysis. In this program you will focus on the characteristics and skills you need to successfully lead in organizational and social contexts. Your coursework will emphasize ethical leadership, legal issues, written and oral communication skills, and critical thinking/decision-making.

Courses are drawn from the disciplines of philosophy, computer science, engineering, information technology, and criminal justice to examine the multi-faceted nature of leadership. We've designed this program to culminate in a senior interdisciplinary project that integrates education and training with the application of problem-solving skills.
