Established in 1867, King is a Presbyterian-affiliated, doctoral-level comprehensive university serving the Southeast and beyond. Modeled as a small university, King cultivates an environment of academic excellence where scholarship, stewardship, and faith are integrated. The University's mission is preparing students in our Christian academic community to excel as thoughtful, resourceful, and responsible citizens with a passion for serving God, the Church, and the world. We encourage students to participate in activities that help them develop and mature on social, intellectual, and spiritual levels. The result is a dynamic community with a broad view of the world, sharpened professional acumen, and commitment to serving others. The University offers more than 90 majors, minors, and pre-professional programs, and confers degrees in two-year, four-year, and graduate-level programs. Adult-oriented degree programs are offered, including Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration, RN to BSN, Social Work, Information Technology, Healthcare Administration, Master of Nursing, and Doctor of Nursing Practice. King is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and is a member of numerous associations including the Appalachian College Association (ACA) and the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU). Additional accreditations for King programs include the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). King's undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 12 to 1 and family-oriented campus atmosphere provide students with personal attention from professors and the opportunity to create lasting friendships. Incoming students experience a curriculum that broadens their understanding of the word and its place in it. The curriculum also helps students examine career options and begin working toward a degree in their chosen fields.
