and Programs

At APSU, we are large enough to offer you a broad range of educational and social options, but small enough to treat you as an individual. We offer all of the resources of a large university, with a small college feel. We serve a large population of diverse students with many bachelor’s and master’s degree options that can be pursued on campus, online, and abroad.

Small Campus Feel. Big Opportunities.

Austin Peay offers the resources of a major university, with a small college feel. You'll get to know people quickly —- including your professors. That one-on-one communication is just part of the friendliness that makes Austin Peay a comfortable place to be.

APSU is surrounded by a thriving community, rich in history and tradition. Set against the Cumberland River, Clarksville offers outdoor activities, great restaurants, and local theatre. Not to mention, we're just 45 minutes from Nashville.
