THE GEORGE M. LUCKEY JR. ACADEMIC HONORS PROGRAM

The Academic Honors Program is an enriched, rigorous scholastic program. Incoming students are selected for the Honors Program and awarded the Honors Scholarship through a rigorous application process. To maintain membership in the program, and eligibility for the Honors Scholarship, students will be required to make satisfactory progress through the program. All students will be reviewed each year.

Mission:

The mission of the Academic Honors Program at Morehead State University is to provide exceptional students with opportunities to accelerate and broaden their personal development, so that they will be prepared to achieve success and make valuable contributions as citizens in the world of the twenty-first century.

Statement of Purpose:

The purpose of the George M. Luckey Jr. Academic Honors Program at Morehead State University is to challenge the truly outstanding student to pursue educational goals more lofty and meaningful than mere good grades. Students in the program will take specially-designed options for some of their general education requirements, participate in regional engagement, undergraduate research, and international experiences, and complete a senior project. Through their educational experiences in the classroom and in other contexts, students in the program will not only master the knowledge required for their chosen fields, but also be able to relate what they learn to other fields of study, and to articulate what they know for non-specialized audiences.
