BRISTOL, Tenn., Feb. 4, 2014 – King University will celebrate another milestone Wednesday,
Feb. 5, 2014, as the Bristol, Tenn.-based institution holds a ribbon-cutting ceremony
and open house celebration at its Franklin, Tenn., campus.
The event will be held from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at 113 Seaboard Lane, Suite B-100 in
The Nashville-area campus will offer baccalaureate- and master’s-level programs through
King’s Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) program, which is specifically designed
for the adult learner. Courses will also be offered for students seeking to build
on existing college credits and obtain a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Several programs
enable students to obtain a degree in as little as 16 months, one night per week.
“We are pleased to be able to offer degree programs in the Nashville area,” says Josie
Russell, regional director of Recruitment for Nashville. “This campus will provide
increased educational opportunities for residents here, giving them another choice
when seeking a quality, accredited program for their return to school.”
Nashville-area students will have the opportunity to choose from seven bachelor’s
degree programs and one master’s-level program — Business Administration, Criminal
Justice, RN-BSN, Health Informatics, Healthcare Administration, Information Technology,
Psychology, along with two master’s-level programs in Business Administration and
Students may also choose from several online degree options, including bachelor’s
degrees in English, History, Business Administration, Information Technology, Communication,
Criminal Justice, Healthcare Administration, Nursing, and Psychology, along with master’s
degrees in Business Administration and Nursing.
“By placing high-caliber programs in convenient locations, working adults can attain
their degrees, and still have time to dedicate to work and family,” says Micah Crews,
associate vice president of Enrollment Management for Operations and Analytics at
King University. “Our GPS program is tailored to reduce the challenges facing the
adult learner. Time and access are often a barrier for students to finish their degrees.
“Extending one’s education to include a bachelor’s or master’s degree provides increased
career opportunities, whether a student is seeking to advance his or her career or
is transitioning from a current area of expertise into a new one,” adds Crews.
King has expanded its adult student population through significant community partnerships,
contributing to Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam’s goal of increasing the percentage of
Tennessee citizenry possessing a two- or four-year college degree to 55 percent by
the year 2025.
In the Nashville-area, these community partnerships include an articulation agreement
and reverse transfer agreement with Nashville State Community College (NSCC), and
a reverse transfer agreement with Volunteer State Community College (VCSS). The reverse
transfer program will be available to VSCC and NSCC students who have transferred
to King University prior to the completion of their associate degree programs.
King University recently joined the Nashville Health Care Council. The Council is
an association of healthcare industry leaders working together to further establish
Nashville as the nation’s healthcare industry capital.
“We are delighted to celebrate the opening of King University’s new campus in the
Nashville area,” says Matt Roberts, chief academic officer and dean of Academic Affairs
at King University. “We have been very encouraged by the strong response we have received
from people in the greater Nashville region. We look forward to continuing the partnerships
we have established in the Nashville market, and growing our academic programs in
the Nashville greater metropolitan area.”
