The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership Program is a "writing intensive" experience. The evaluation of student learning in the program is regularly accomplished through submission of papers and other written projects. It is our desire that each student successfully completes the MSOL program. As a part of the MSOL program admission process, and in place of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or other standardized tests, each applicant submits a writing sample.
