About the Program
Adult students with little or no higher education experience are eligible to take courses in the Pathway program. These courses provide the opportunity for working adults to complete core curriculum and elective coursework, while preparing to enter a King University professional studies degree program. In terms of content, each course is designed to be comparable to those offered to traditional undergraduate students. Each Pathway course will meet monthly or in a 5 week schedule depending on the class, or online. Course availability will vary by semester.
The Pathway curriculum varies each semester based on availability and interest.
The following are examples of courses offered on a rotating schedule to ensure that all students have the opportunity to take the necessary core courses to rotate into the chosen degree program. Students in this program are also eligible to enroll in the Quest courses.
