King University Announces Summer 2018 Degree Programs for Working Adults

This summer, working adults in East Tennessee will have the opportunity to complete their associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree from King University. King offers programs specifically designed with the adult learner in mind through the University’s Graduate and Professional Studies and Online Programs (GPS) as well as numerous courses for students who wish to transition from an associate degree to a bachelor’s degree. Applications are now being accepted for summer 2018 enrollment.

“It’s a great time for working adults to return to school to pursue their degree,” says Jon Harr, Ed.D., interim vice president of Enrollment Management. “Whether they attend one night a week at one of our three campuses and 10 locations or entirely online, they can complete their major coursework in as little as 16 months. This allows them the balance they need for work and family, as well as the opportunity to achieve a goal that could launch their careers in a whole new direction.”

Adults who are beginning to pursue a college degree or who have completed fewer than 60 semester hours of coursework will benefit from participating in King’s Pathway. Offered at the University’s Knoxville campus as well as online, Pathway allows students to complete all general education and elective requirements so they can smoothly transition into their degree coursework.

The Summer 2018 GPS bachelor’s degree offerings for King’s Knoxville campus at Hardin Valley are Business Administration, Communication, Criminal Justice, Healthcare Administration, Nursing, and Psychology. Also available is the Master of Business Administration with specializations in Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Healthcare Administration, Human Resource Management, Leadership, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Nonprofit Management, or Project Management. King is also recruiting for the Master of Education for curriculum and instruction for those seeking licensure.

Area residents in Morristown and Sevierville have the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Walters State Community College locations.

Students also have the option of obtaining their King University degree online. “We are excited to provide working adults with additional, convenient ways to obtain a quality degree and further their education,” said Harr. “Our degree programs are intended to build knowledge and practice in the field, as well as foster professional integrity, and promote personal growth.”

Online degree options are Associate of Arts and bachelor’s degree programs in English, Business Administration, Communication, Criminal Justice, Health Informatics, Healthcare Administration, History, Information Technology, Nursing, Psychology, and Religious Studies. The Master of Business Administration for Professionals, Master of Education in Instructional Leadership, and an add-on licensure program for English as a Second Language are also online.
