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 School of Education has initial licensure programs at the undergraduate and at the graduate level which also serves embedded teachers in Tennessee. Our program models nine professional dispositions which underpin all our courses: Integrity, Responsibility, Self-Efficacy, Open-Mindedness, Reflexivity, Collaboration, Flexibility, Caring, and Social Justice. To support candidates in required licensure tests, the School of Education sets up online and in-person opportunities to practice and review. Field experiences in classrooms and in the Boys and Girls Clubs enable candidates to solidify their teaching goals. Faculty advisors work with candidates to plan for coursework and required assessments. For job placement, mock interviews help candidates feel more confident. Operating on the belief that teaching is a sacred calling, the School of Education values individuals who, upon completion of the program, will serve in the classroom with their unique gifts and talents. The School of Education applauds the work of our graduates who make a difference with the students in their classrooms every day and celebrates our graduates who become Teachers of the Year.
