King's College is rooted in the Holy Cross tradition, which recognizes education as an art, not a mechanical process. Classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants, who have earned the highest degrees in their fields and bring years of real-world experience to the classroom. Our faculty considers teaching to be their priority and constantly hone their skills at the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) in order to help students reach their potential.
Recognizing that every student learns differently, we use an engaged mentorship approach, where professors get to know you well enough to understand how you learn. They'll not only recognize you by name, but make themselves available to help - whether it's during scheduled office hours, through e-mail or even over coffee. This is possible because we have a favorable 12:1 student/faculty ratio that's conducive to discussion and interactive learning.
Labs and classes average only 18 students, giving you easy access to state-of-the-art facilities and technology that rivals top research institutions. You may engage in one-on-one research projects with faculty members in the sciences, work directly with humanities professors to improve your writing skills, or design a robotic project with the chair of the engineering department. For exceptional students, we offer a highly selective Honors Program in which they receive an individualized education matched to their specific career goals.
Life Beyond the Classroom
King's encourages students to extend their experiences by exploring life beyond the classroom. Study Abroad offers the opportunity to live, learn and intern in a new culture, giving students a global perspective and experience that employers want.
Service Learning enriches what is taught in the classroom by integrating coursework with civic involvement to strengthen our communities. The Experiencing the Arts Program encourages you to explore your artistic side and uncover passions that lead to well-rounded lives. A wealth of extra-curricular activities, including athletics, clubs and organizations, develop leadership and team-building skills that are critical to success.
Throughout campus you'll find the opportunities to interact with advisors, coaches and other mentors to be limitless. This personal interest and involvement pays off as more of our students graduate in four years than at institutions with larger class sizes.
