Morehead State University has been offering college courses in Prestonsburg for more than 30 years. Initially classes were available at night at the local public schools. As a result of steady student growth, MSU in cooperation with legislators, the school system, and business and industry leaders in the area, expanded its educational opportunities in Floyd County.
MSU established a full-time presence in the Big Sandy region beginning in 1991. MSU at Prestonsburg is now located on the campus of Big Sandy Community and Technical College. The completion of the over $6 million regional postsecondary education center, a multipurpose conference facility for education/training that includes classrooms, compressed video communication, a computer lab, and office sace, allowed MSU at Prestonsburg to move its entire operation in 2003.
MSU at Prestonsburg provides educational and training opportunities for Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin, and Pike Counties.
Students may enroll in graduate and undergraduate level courses for traditionally taught day, night, and weekend classes, as well as internet and interactive video classes. Area students will be able to choose from a variety of courses leading to either a bachelors, masters, or education specialist degree. MSU at Prestonsburg is committed to meeting the needs of the region and giving students from the region a quality education, without the necessity of having to live on campus or commute.
