About MSU at West Liberty

MSU at WL building

Morehead State University has been offering college courses in West Liberty for more than 20 years. Initially, a few of graduate classes for public school teachers were available at night at Morgan County High School.

MSU established a full-time presence in Morgan County in 1987 to assist in training the staff of the new East Kentucky Correctional Complex, the largest state prison in Kentucky. A building on Ky. 7 just north of the city limits of West Liberty was remodeled to provide offices and classrooms.

Renamed in 2000 to become MSU at West Liberty, the center today enrolls students each semester at the undergraduate and graduate levels for traditionally taught day, night and weekend classes and for Internet and interactive video classes from the main campus.

MSU at West Liberty is unique among the University's regional centers because it also includes an Adult Education and Career Center that offers literacy training and prepares undereducated adults for the GED examination which, if successfully passes, can lead to postsecondary education.

Degree programs available at MSU at West Liberty include an Associate Degree in University Studies, Bachelor of  Arts-Communication Leadership Studies, Bachelor of University Studites, Minor options in Communication Studies, Criminology, General Business (Non-Business Majors Only) Sociology, and Psychology as well as the General Education Rotation.

A new $5 million classroom and office facility off U.S. 460 at Index opened in May 2002. The higher education center of learning includes computer laboratories, distance learning and multi-media classrooms.

Dr. Jonell Tobin has been the director of MSU at West Liberty since its opening.
