King University is a Presbyterian, master's-level comprehensive university offering more than 80 majors, minors, pre-professional degrees and concentrations in fields such as business, digital media, nursing, forensic science, education, and humanities. Graduate programs are offered in business administration, nursing, and education. A number of off-campus learning opportunities and travel destinations are also available.
King University has five academic schools of learning:
• King College of Arts and Sciences
• King School of Business and Economics
• King School of Education
• King School of Nursing
• Peeke School of Christian Mission
Location: Bristol, Tennessee nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
The collection is an excellent resource for our students, allowing them the opportunity to study works at close range without leaving the campus. The collection is also a community resource. A portion is on constant display in the E.W. King Library at no cost to visitors.
Regional artists draw on the collection for inspiration, creating such events as the Artistic Reflections II event that premiered musical compositions based on the visual aspects of the works. The University hosts events that offer members of the community the opportunity to view concentrations of some of the more prominent works.
