The Graduate Certificate in Military Leadership provides an opportunity for civilian and military students to pursue a course of study in military leadership. The courses, offered 100% online, examine world and U.S. military leaders from the perspective of effectiveness, style and practice. In addition, the program includes the study of the evolution of military leadership thought within the larger body of knowledge on leadership. Finally, courses cover contemporary military leadership issues and strategy. The certificate program includes an individual research project focused on a specific dimension of military leadership. This serves as the student's capstone experience in the program. Finally, the five courses in the certificate program can be coupled with seven additional courses to complete the M.S. in Leadership degree.
