Middle Grades and Secondary Education

Welcome and thanks for your interest in middle and secondary teacher preparation at Morehead State University!

The preparation of teachers to educate young people approaching and during adolescence has been central to Morehead State University's mission since its inception. First called Morehead Normal School, it was by definition a place for training teachers. Though its programs have broadened over the last century, the preparation of teachers for the middle and secondary schools of Kentucky remains at the heart of the University's mission, and in this department we see it as our primary focus.

In the Department of Middle Grades, Secondary Education, and MAT Programs, eighteen full-time faculty and staff come together, bringing a wide range of expertise and experience, to the task. We have scholars, published in a wide range of national and international journals, and career professionals, experienced in all manner of public school classrooms, who come together to provide our students with the combination of research, theory, and practice necessary to equip them to be the very best teachers they can be.
