The Leadership Science program allows students to explore the science and practice of leadership, and equips current and future leaders with skills that are transferrable to the workplace and beyond.  No matter what your major, the Leadership Science Program will help you prepare to take on leadership roles after graduation and during your time at Austin Peay. You can earn a minor in Leadership Science, or take leadership courses as electives. All courses are offered online.
