Center for Leadership Studies

Now offered from Piedmont International University

As Dr. Lee Roberson, the founder of Tennessee Temple University, often stated, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” The TTU Center for Leadership Studies was founded in 2008 as a multidisciplinary online approach to the development of leaders in a variety of organizations. Students gain the knowledge required to advance in their career and community as a competent and ethical leader through the exploration of topics, such as: leadership theories and principles, organizational development, communication and change, conflict resolution, and strategic planning. Students also thoroughly evaluate contemporary issues in leadership, interview prominent leaders, and develop solutions for current problems to become knowledgeable, innovative, and well-rounded Christian leaders in ministry, business, and education.


Center for Leadership Studies Objectives

  1. Establish a forum, grounded in biblical foundations, for reflection, thought, research and publication on biblical worldview issues, thereby influencing the leadership of organizations throughout the world.
  2. Provide a quality doctoral program that offers an opportunity for development and enhancement of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to accomplish the goals and objectives into which God is leading the candidate.


In order to accomplish these objectives, the university offers two programs, a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Leadership and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Leadership. The M.A. in Leadership is a 36 hour, two-year program. The Ph.D. in Leadership is a 60 hour program, which can be completed in as few as three years.

Our students come from diverse career fields, varied ethnicities, and multiple countries. These include directors of ministries, educators, governmental and military personnel, educational professionals, business men and women, and healthcare professionals. We invite you to explore our programs and concentrations, get to know our friendly faculty and staff, and read what our students and graduates are saying about our program!
