The core curriculum focuses on leadership in local, state, federal, and nonprofit organizations, but the program itself includes a broad range of courses that allow students to complete their bachelor’s degree requirements within the NCSU College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

The course is offered through the First Year College.
