he Core Curriculum is the foundation of a King’s education. It engages students with a broad and coherent intellectual foundation for informed and thoughtful leadership in successful careers after graduation. The interdisciplinary approach comprises the disciplines of politics, philosophy, and economics in tandem with the traditional arts—history, literature, theology, science, and math. In addition to completing the Core Curriculum, graduates of the class of 2017 majored in four different subject areas:

media, culture, and the arts (MCA), politics, philosophy, and economics (PPE), business (BUS), and finance (FIN). Notably, there was a 10% increase in the class of 2016 over the class of 2015 of those who chose to major in BUS and FIN, rising from 15.5% to 25%. Moreover, business remains the most popular minor EMPLOYMENT (Opposite Page): While 87% of the class of 2015 was either employed or in graduate school within 6 months of graduation, 98% of the class of 2016 was similarly situated—which is 15% better than the national average.

*The knowledge rate reflects graduate information taken from the 2016 Post-Graduate Survey (69%) and gathered from LinkedIn (16%)

t King’s we have a bias toward action that encourages students to explore their fields of interest in practice. As we say, the classroom is where you learn ideas and theories, but the city is the laboratory where you put those ideas and theories to the test. Therefore, in addition to meeting with an OVCD career coach and taking advantage of our skills-based workshops, students are encouraged to build their way forward through prototypes— from informational interviews to marketplace visits to internships—so they can try out careers before they graduate and enter the workforce. On the next page are some of the internships students have had in the past year.

“Entrepreneurs often think about the what and the how more than the why, but King’s taught me that the why matters—and it’s making a huge difference in how we’re building our company.”

“Interning at 3 separate places while being a full-time student wasn’t easy, but it helped me land a job and know how to succeed in busy workplaces.”

“At King’s, I learned about amazing art from Dr. Bleattler; as a global flight attendant, I experience the world that inspired that art.”

“In the inconsistent and busy entertainment industry, my faith—matured and strengthened at King’s—grounds me and gives me purpose.”

“Disney goes above and beyond to provide the best service for its guests, a standard of excellence I learned at the college, too.”

“The PPE core gave me the tools to interpret the world, and the faculty nurtured my writing and film-making and gave me real-world opportunities to practice them.”

Through its commitment to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview, The King’s College seeks to transform society by preparing students for careers in which they help to shape and eventually to lead strategic public and private institutions, and by supporting faculty members as they directly engage culture through writing and speaking publicly on critical issues.
