The life changing mission of King's

The King's College seeks students who desire to engage the world. The faculty members expose these students to great and profound ideas and challenge them to measure these ideas against the truth of Scripture. This rigorous education is coupled with the leadership and career opportunities that New York City affords, because the college wants its students to be prepared to enter boardrooms, courtrooms, and newsrooms -- and to help shape and lead them.

Among Christian colleges, King's stands alone as a place of influence in the secular city. Rather than sheltering its students from mainstream society, the college equips them to change it. The King's College is looking for students who will make a difference.

New York City is the campus

Because the world's greatest musicians, filmmakers, artists, athletes, scholars, and entertainers find their way to New York, King's students have a great time enjoying the city during their 4 years in college. They study art on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; history where Washington gave his farewell address to the troops of the Revolutionary War; business on Wall Street; journalism near major news networks; and politics in one of the most political cities in the world. Their quad is Central Park, and their cafeteria stretches the streets and avenues with the ever-changing international cuisine of New York. Students also find quiet coffee shops, vibrant churches, music venues, sports games, Broadway shows, and a plethora of other ways to enjoy their campus. There is no better place to be a college student than New York City.

Challenging academics and Inspiring Faculty

At the core of the King's experience is inquiry into the ideas that have shaped history. Through the carefully crafted curriculum, founded upon a Biblical worldview, students will investigate the ideas upon which nations rise and fall. These ideas flavor the discussions they will have in and out of the classroom.

The gifted faculty and administrators are not just scholars; they're also practitioners. The King's College's business professors come straight from Wall Street. Politics professors have run for office. Faculty members write for newspapers and appear on television. Not only do they epitomize the best teaching and thinking in their fields, they are examples to the students every day.

Life-changing Internships

King's students don't just land internships; they land life-changing opportunities. Students have held internships at CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, Saturday Night Live, United Nations, Oppenheimer & Co., Deustsche Bank, Ralph Lauren, W Magazine, 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Radio City, and the White House to name a few.

From the classroom to the world with International Ventures

King's students engage the world through the unique International Ventures program. Each summer, students, faculty members, and staff members venture to places like Uganda, Turkey, Albania, France, China, and Israel to meet with ambassadors, work with top public and private universities, and investigate economic issues in developing countries. Students debate issues ranging from Christianity and religion to free markets, marriage, and family. These trips show students how the ideas they learn in the classroom translate to the real world.

Community unlike any other

Houses are the heart of student life at The King's College. During each student's time here, his or her House will be a source of camaraderie and encouragement. These Houses of about 40 students are named after noble leaders that in some ways embody the ideals of The King's College, and it is within the House system that underclassmen are mentored, shown the ropes, and brought into the community. Many of the housemates students meet when they first arrive will become lifelong friends. Students will rub shoulders with people who challenge and inspire them. They will have opportunities to participate in group Bible studies and inter-House social events. Their Housemates will help them navigate the city and weather the storms of life.
