This spring, working adults in Tennessee and Southwest Virginia will have the opportunity
to complete their associate, bachelor’s degree 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 Online Programs (GPS) as well
as numerous courses for students who wish to transition from an associate degree to
a bachelor’s degree.
“Our GPS program is tailored to reduce the challenges facing the adult learner. Time
and access is often a barrier for students to finish their degree,” said John King,
vice president of Development and Enrollment Management for King University. “By
offering classes in both convenient locations, one night per week, and in an online
format, the working adult may obtain their degree in as little as 16 months and open
the door for professional advancement.”
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
program. Offered at the University’s Bristol and Knoxville campuses, Pathway allows
students to complete all general education and elective requirements, so they can
smoothly transition into their degree coursework.
The spring 2014 GPS degree offerings for Bristol include Pathway, Bachelor of Business
Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BIT), Master
of Business Administration for professionals (MBA), and Master of Education (MEd).
The BBA degree will also be offered in Blountville.

and promote personal growth.”
