Student-Centered, Career-Focused: The King University Experience

posted by

The King Difference is more than just an education, it's a student-centered and career-focused approach that puts students first.

It’s no secret that earning a college degree is increasingly important. According to the Pew Research Center, college graduates earn about $17,500 more annually than adults with a high school education. Among 25- to 32-year-olds, college graduates are better prepared for work and a career. But with almost 3,000 four-year colleges in the United States, how can you find the one that’s right for you?

When it comes to choosing an online program, quality matters. There are several aspects students consider when making this important decision: affordability, transfer credits, course offerings and speed to graduation are just a few. King University strives to provide all of these features and more. We are a Presbyterian-affiliated comprehensive university offering degrees from the associate to doctoral level. Founded in 1867, King has a long tradition of providing accredited, career-focused education to students like you. We offer degrees in relevant, real-world fields like business, healthcare, education, technology and more.

This introduction to King and our online program offerings will give you insight into why we’re the right choice for your online education.
