AIRS 3301 - Air Force Leadership Studies I

3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: full-time students.


This course is a study of leadership required of an Air Force junior officer; it has applicability to any entry-level professional as a junior executive. The course investigates theories and styles of leadership, power and influence, the meaning and function of followership in the military context, critical thinking, problem solving and team building, group conflict management, situational leadership, and management functions and principles. Films and case studies are used for analysis of theories and principles studied. Students receive instruction and practice effective writing (e.g., background and position papers) and briefing skills (e.g., informative and advocacy briefings) for professional communications; students practice both modes of communication. The course also provides professional officer education in terms of defining professional and unprofessional relationships, working with civilian personnel, and the profession of arms. The course is open to any student. For officer candidates, a mandatory leadership laboratory complements this course.
