"I am a senior graduating this fall with a Bachelor of Communication, and I'm excited! Going back to school was a personal goal, and I needed a convenient schedule that would accommodate my busy life. King University offers an accelerated program for adult learners they offer online classes or one-night-a-week at the Knoxville campus. Personally, I prefer the convenient schedule of one-night-a-week. I have learned attention to detail and time management skills in the communication program at King University, and these skills have become important because ultimately I am responsible for my education. King University is accredited and offers affordable learning in a Christian environment. What can you do with a communication degree from King University? Studies show that employers seek skills in verbal and written communication, teamwork, and technology. King has prepared me with these skills, I have been challenged to think critically, speak publically, actively listen, and communicate effectively. I encourage you to come and join the King experience."

The Communication program at King University has been the savior of my turbulent college career. Before King, I had difficulty committing my time and money to a single major for fear that I would end up unhappy in my journey. However, Communication is the most underrated and the most useful skill anyone can have. This degree is perfect for those, like me, who consider themselves a "jack of all trades." King has made earning my degree simple by offering a convenient, accelerated schedule that I can afford. The Communication classes are small at the Knoxville campus, which caters to people like me who prefer a one-on-one teaching approach. King values community, and I have enjoyed getting to know my Communication classmates. We have great discussions in class as well as outside of class as we work on group projects together. The security guards are very nice, and students feel safe as the grounds are patrolled. The best part about King's Communication program is how involved the faculty and staff are in the education process. Every time I ask for help, I always receive a prompt response from knowledgeable people. My instructors are very active in emailing, and have even offered to Skype on their own time to help me. Overall, I would rate my experience in King's Communication program an A+.
