Leaders Abroad: Enhancing Your Leadership Development through the Study Abroad Experience

Study abroad can be one of the most beneficial experiences in a college student's career. Studying abroad teaches students to be independent in a way college does not. Whilst abroad, students learn to navigate new areas, currencies, and languages. In turn, this will develop their leadership skills.

Leadership experiences abroad plus class credit

There are many SDSU Exchange programs that offer courses that will potentially count towards the elective portion of the minor. If you believe that a course offered abroad should be accepted for the minor, fill out a Request for Adjustment of Academic Requirement (RAAR) form and have it approved by Dr. Gates.
