About the Preparation Program*
Meeting the educational needs of East Kentucky and beyond while striving to constantly improve the quality of public service, economic development and applied research programs are the primary objectives of Morehead State University. Historically, the University traces its lineage to the Morehead Normal School, a private school which opened its doors in 1887. In the spring of 1922 the Kentucky General Assembly established Morehead State Normal School. Name changes occurred in 1926 when "and Teachers College" was added, again in 1930 when it was shortened to Morehead State Teachers College, again in 1948 when "Teachers" was dropped and, finally, to university status in 1966. Teacher preparation has been vital to the mission of Morehead State University since those early days and remains so today. The focus of the College of Education at Morehead State University is people. Our programs train students in disciplines aimed at making a positive impact on society including teaching. Involvement prepares students to work with adult learners.
