At King, we want our students to understand their place in the larger
community. One of the ways we do this is by encouraging students to participate in domestic and international travel opportunities, allowing them to combine study with hands-on experiences. These trips include critical examination of the cultural, societal, economic, and reli-
gious characteristics of the places we visit.

See the world with a wide range of domestic and international travel opportunities extending from China to Ireland, available as early as your first semester. Broaden your knowledge of other cultures by experiencing them, rather than just reading about them in a book. And we do more than tell you what to pack - faculty and staff often accompany students on trips. Join the more than 25 percent of traditional undergraduate students who travel each year on study abroad, spring break, mission, and community service trips. Study abroad in the Tuscan village of Montepulciano, Italy, where you will learn about western culture, language, history, art, and literature with King College professors. Choose from courses such as early church history and existential philosophy and attend classes daily to earn credit.
King College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate and masters degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of King College.
“When King College goes abroad, we, as faculty, hope to do something more than just take a trip with students. We want students to experience a place and culture rather than simply observing or passing through. In other words, when we travel with King students – we want to go alongside them, rather than just send them; we don’t want students to just `go there,’ we want them to `be there.’” Dr. Tracy Parkinson Dean of Faculty

“King College faculty members take their roles as academic advisors very seriously. The School of Education is no exception. As early as the first semester, we help students create four-year plans for completing their educational programs. Early conversations about majors and minors offer students the time to explore and to think about their varied interests. These days it is critical to craft an educational program that is marketable, so it is very common for our students to major in one thing and add an additional endorsement or minor in something totally different or craft their own major so they can be prepared for the careers they choose. Attention to planning makes this work.” Dr. Cara Everett Anderson Dean, School of Education
“King has a great reputation, so it is easier to get a teaching position. King College continuously turns out great teachers, and school systems are aware of this. I benefited most from the hands-on experiences I received. Teaching is completely different when you get out into the field to try out all the theories you learned in the classroom. The course work is challenging, but when I look back, I realize that those times prepared me for the work force.” Jeff Mustard, Alumnus Social Studies Teacher, Tennessee High School Bristol, Tennessee
