King University News :: King College Offers Bachelor's Degree Programs at Walters State

This fall, students in Morristown and Sevier County will have the opportunity to transfer into King College's Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) program and complete their bachelor's degree.

Walters State students in Morristown will have three transfer options - Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Information Technology (BTech), or Bachelor of Science for Registered Nurses (RN-BSN).  Students at the Sevier County campus in Sevierville will have the option of a BBA, or a BBA with a concentration in Hospitality Management.

King is making it easier for working adults throughout the region in their quest to obtain a bachelor's degree, said Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for Graduate Professional Studies for King College.  Whether it is a personal goal or a step toward furthering one's career, the bachelor's degree programs are designed to reduce the challenges adult learners face in balancing personal and professional goals.

The convenient location is ideal for Walters State students because they are already acclimated to the campus, said Salyer.  Students will be able to complete the bachelor's degree program in as little as 16 months.

King will offer junior and senior-level courses leading to bachelor degrees in business administration, nursing, information technology, and hospitality management.  Walters State offers two-year associate degree programs in business administration, information technology, nursing, and hotel and restaurant management.  Walters State students who complete their degrees in one of these programs will be able to transfer seamlessly into respective bachelor programs at King.

Extending one's education to include a bachelor's degree provides increased career opportunities, whether a student is seeking to advance their career or they are transitioning from their current area of expertise into a new one, said Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management for King College.
