King University

Contact information

Founded in 1867, King University (originally King College) is a Presbyterian-affiliated Christian academic community dedicated to the integration of rigorous academic programming and the exploration of faith. The value of the school's educational environment has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report, which has named King a Best Regional University in the South for nearly 30 consecutive years. King has also been recognized by the Brookings Institution, which in 2016 ranked the University third in Tennessee for preparing students for high-paying careers. The School of Education is one of King University's six schools of academic learning. Its programs for both traditional and adult undergraduate studies and adult graduate degrees are housed on the main campus in Bristol with a satellite campus in Knoxville. Students in the education programs choose from 13 academic licensure areas and are immersed in K-12 classrooms throughout their college experience. Their education program culminates in the completion of a semester-long student teaching placement in public school classrooms. Licensure is awarded upon the candidates' successful completion of subject-specific assessments measuring the necessary skills and knowledge mastered by all effective teachers, as well as a performance-based assessment of their reflective practice in a classroom setting.
