MLSC 305 – Leadership and Modern Learning

MLSC 305 is a progressive course that leads the student through a series of five modules that introduce them to the principles of small group leadership, tactics, communication techniques, decision making, and troop leading procedures. Our focus is on developing leadership competence. The lessons require students to participate in class and in the weekly Leadership Lab. Students conduct practical application of principles of leadership/management as applied in classroom and field to include case studies in psychological, physiological, and sociological factors that affect human behavior. Individually and in groups, students solve leadership problems common to small units.
