Any student from any major is encouraged to register and complete the Leadership Certificate. Because the courses are sequential, students should register for the three courses in order and ideally complete the Certificate over the course of three separate semesters. The Leadership Certificate is a partnership between the Clemson University Division of Student Affairs and the College of Health, Education & Human Development.
