Welcome to Kentucky State University.  KSU embraces a culture of learning on the campus.  Small classes and accessible faculty make Kentucky State a great place to learn and grow.  KSU offers its students a plethora of great degree options.

My relationship with Kentucky State University goes back to 1972 when my father joined the KSU family as a professor in the music department.  KSU has grown a lot since then, but throughout that growth, KSU has maintained a student-centered approach to teaching and learning grounded in the liberal arts.  KSU continues to honor its heritage as a historically black university.

Kentucky State produces some of the best research in the world.  Along with this exceptional research, KSU carries out its land grant mission through diverse set of extension programs.

KSU academics are divided into 4 colleges:  the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Computer Science, the College of Professional Studies, and the College of Agriculture, Food Science, and Sustainable Systems.

We invite you to explore the many wonderful academic opportunities that Kentucky State University has to offer.
