BS in Leadership Now Accepting New Learners

Dr. Carolyn Turner, Dean of Cincinnati Undergraduate Studies, serves as the program’s chair

CINCINNATI – As part of Union Institute & University’s ongoing efforts to provide relevant, timely degree options to adult learners, the university today announced the launch of the Bachelor of Science in Leadership program. The new multi-disciplinary program is tailored toward the learner’s chosen career path.

Dr. Carolyn Turner, dean of Undergraduate Studies at the Cincinnati Center, is serving as the program’s chair. “Learners will work with faculty who will help them design and follow a degree plan that suits their chosen profession. It is an ideal program for those in business, the arts, information technology, health professions, culinary studies, and in non-profit management,” said Dr. Turner. “The leadership major is really for anyone who wants to make lasting change in their professions. Learners will learn how to articulate a perspective on power in the world and forge their own place in the global community,” said Dr. Turner.

Learners will apply, analyze, and evaluate a variety of concepts and theories of leadership to their own professional practice experiences; discuss and evaluate effective management and leadership behaviors and their implications in professional practice; and describe the connections between ethics and leadership. In addition, they will learn to apply ethical principles to issues in their chosen practice; deepen understanding of the complexity of leadership and how to enhance their capacity to be effective leaders in their chosen field; and identify, assess, lead, and manage change in the professional environment.
