BRISTOL, Tenn., Oct. 15, 2015 – King University is now offering a select set of collegiate
courses for adults ages 60 and over. The offerings are part of a new program at King
entitled Lifelong Learning at King in which the adult learners would audit the non-credit
classes at King’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn., free of charge.
“We are excited to offer this continuing education opportunity for our more seasoned
adult learners in our community,” said Dr. Richard A. Ray, interim president at King
University. “We have received inquiries about offering such a program as this. We
truly do want to give our people something they will enjoy, and that will deepen their
own personal education.
“King University has a great tradition of service to the surrounding community,” Dr.
Ray continued. “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 at King will offer a select set of courses taught by King professors.
The courses include:
Cold War: History and Politics
By auditing the selected courses, the students will be able to attend class, learning
alongside the traditional students in the classroom, without worry of test-taking.
“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.”
Registration for the courses through the Lifelong Learning at King program is currently
open for the spring 2016 semester, which begins Monday, Jan. 11. Books are available
for purchase through http://books.king.edu.

dean of the King College of Arts and Science at King University at 423.652.6007 or
