When you step onto the campus of Morehouse College — the nation's only comprehensive, private liberal arts college for men — you immediately are aware of both your history and your destiny.
Morehouse's history is so impressive, so tangible, that you can't help but be filled with a keen sense of awe and respect for the men who have come to this place before you and gone on to make outstanding contributions to society. You know their names: Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., filmmaker Shelton “Spike” Lee, Olympic Gold Medalist Edwin Moses, and countless other Morehouse Men among your family members, friends and mentors who are leaders in their churches, communities and professions.
Now, you are contemplating walking in their footsteps. You are attracted to Morehouse, in part, because you perceive within yourself the potential for the greatness you have come to admire in men such as these. You are at a crossroads in life's journey, where history and the future intersect.
Your first step is to define yourself. Your destiny is to redefine the world.
No institution has achieved greater success than Morehouse College — the nation's only private, historically black, liberal arts college for men — at preparing young men, particularly African American males, to be exemplary models of leadership, manhood and citizenship.
Morehouse has grown from a handful of students learning in the dim light of a church basement in 1867, to a world-respected institution with a chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society and a rigorous, increasingly international curriculum.
Our nearly 3,000 students are exposed to emerging technologies and prepared for global leadership in diverse careers. As a Morehouse student, you may choose from 35 areas of study en route to earning the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree.
