Lifelong Learning at King

King University offers a select set of collegiate courses for adults aged 60 and over. Adult learners audit non-credit classes at King’s main campus in Bristol, Tennessee, free of charge.

Courses are taught by King professors in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Health & Professional Sciences. The courses cover a range of subjects including history, literature, Bible, theatre, photography, intelligence studies, politics, biology, criminal justice, English, fine arts, religion, philosophy, mathematics, and music.

By auditing the selected courses, adult students will be able to attend class without the worry of taking tests, while learning alongside traditional students in the classroom.

Lifelong Learners must enroll before classes start each semester. Requests to enroll late will only be considered under special circumstances.

Note: Books are not required for classes, but can optionally be purchased at or most online book retailers.
