BRISTOL, Tenn., May 11, 2017 – Registration is now open for a select set of collegiate
courses for adults ages 60 and over. The offerings are part of the Lifelong Learning
program at King in which the adult learners can audit non-credit classes at King’s
main campus in Bristol, Tenn., free of charge.
“The hallmark of a broadly educated individual is to be a lifelong learner,” said
Dr. Matt Roberts, vice president for Academic Affairs at King University. “Part of
King's commitment to education is to develop lifelong learners – learners who develop
an intellectual curiosity for their world that never diminishes as they get older...a
program such as the Lifelong Learning at King helps define and sustain that commitment
for our students and our community.”
The new program will offer a select set of courses taught by King professors in the
King College of Arts & Sciences and King’s School of Communication, Information, and
Design. The courses cover a range of studies at King including religion, music, theatre,
history, literature, intelligence studies, and politics.
“King University has a great tradition of service throughout the region,” says Roberts.
“It is an important tradition we strive to uphold. Offering thought provoking and
engaging courses provide a new pathway to continue the adventure of lifelong learning.”
Lifelong Learning at King course offerings for fall 2017 include:
By auditing the selected courses, the students are able to attend class, learning
alongside the traditional students in the classroom, without worry of test-taking.
Registration for the courses through the Lifelong Learning at King program is currently
open for the fall 2017 semester, which begins Monday, Aug. 21. Course books are available
for purchase through http://books.king.edu or most online book retailers.
