Undergraduate Courses

LDRS-201 Sophomore Seminar in Principled Leadership 1 credit hour
Required of all second-year cadets, this course focuses on The Citadel Core Values of Honor, Duty, and Respect as those values constitute principled leadership. The course also assists cadets in the process of transitioning from the freshan year to the sophomore year and enables them to reflect upon their experiences of the Chitadel's fourth-class system as they learn more about effective, ethical leadership.  In addition, the course includes a focus on service as a component of principled leadership through a service learning experience. This course is a graded, one-hour course.
A student must have permission from the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs to withdraw from LDRS 201.
