| The University has a responsibility to provide education
access to the people of the region who desire educational
opportunities. Extending the reach of the University throughout the
region by providing opportunities for working professionals to pursue
advanced degrees is a high priority. A number of graduate degree
programs are made available through our network of regional campuses
and through various distance learning methodologies. The Center for
Continuing Education and Academic Outreach is a member of the
Association for Continuing Higher Education (ACHE).
For students who cannot attend traditional classes either on-campus or at one of the regional campuses, the University has developed an extensive program of distance learning classes delivered through the Internet. Murray State University utilized the Blackboard course management software to deliver these courses and works with the Kentucky Virtual University to further extend the outreach of the University through distance learning. Information about distance learning opportunities can be found through the KYVU web-site, www.kyvu.org or from Murray State as referenced to the right.
Continuing Education/Academic Outreach coordinates regional development activities through the new Regional Center for Emerging Technologies (RSET). The RSET coordinates economic development activities and provides a window to the university for business, industry, and governmental organizations. The RSET is heavily involved in maximizing university resources to create technology-based start-up businesses to aid economic development in the region. For more information, call 270-809-4220.
The primary service area of Murray State University encompasses 18 counties in far west Kentucky. To extend the outreach of the University throughout the service area, regional campuses have been established in Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, and Paducah. Programs are also offered at Ft. Campbell, as well as other sites throughout the region. Information concerning programs available at each site, admissions and registration procedures, and class schedules are published each semester in the Murray State University Schedule of Classes. This information is also available by calling toll-free, 800-669-7654 or online at http//:ceao.murraystate.edu.
