Goldenrod flower in full bloomTaught by Dr. Robin West, MCC’s Outstanding Faculty Member, 2013-2014, History of Kentucky focuses on the social, economic, cultural, and political trends of each of Kentucky’s Running Horsesregions, along with the growth and development of each.

There is so much to learn about the Bluegrass State, according to Dr. West.  “In this course we’ll explore little known facts about Kentucky history, many of which have great personal interest to our students."

History of Kentucky, a three-credit hour course, will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9:30 – 10:45 a.m.) and fulfills MCC’s heritage general education requirement for degree-seeking students.  Tuition is currently $144 per credit hour; financial aid is available to those who qualify.  Students age 65 and over may qualify for free tuition through the MCC Donovan Scholars Program. 

Fall 2014 classes begin August 18th.  For more information, contact Aimee Wilkerson (270/824-8696 or email aimee.wilkerson@kctcs.edu).
