"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."
