Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Students may propose an individualized course of study aimed at meeting personal and academic goals. Working with the graduate program director, students may design a unique program of study by selecting and justifying three related elective courses from among those offered in other Salve Regina University graduate programs such as administration of justice and homeland security (ADJ); business studies (MGT); health care administration and management (HCA); holistic counseling (HLC); humanities (HUM); international relations (INR); or rehabilitation counseling (RHB). Unique programs of concentration require the permission of the graduate program director.

Program Requirements


The leadership program offers a 36-credit master’s degree in holistic leadership.  Graduates of the Salve Regina holistic counseling program and/or other university graduate programs may earn an additional 12-credit Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies or a 12-credit Certificate of Graduate Studies in holistic leadership.  Applicants to the holistic leadership certificate program who already have a master’s or an undergraduate (in some instances) degree from an accredited university other than Salve Regina may be eligible for admissions into a Certificate of Graduate Studies program in holistic leadership.  Upon review of a potential student’s application, and on a case-by-case basis, applicants may be required to take additional holistic foundation courses in order to be fully matriculated into the CAGS and CGS programs. 

Curriculum


Students must successfully complete 36 credits to qualify for the master’s degree in holistic leadership.

Students must choose one of the following four courses as part of the required curriculum:
