"King Universitys COMM program is an empowering academic experience. As a working mother of four children, I have been able to finish my Communication degree without missing out on my childrens lives. The format is created for working adults and allows the student to manage their time most effectively. I have been taught by amazing professors who genuinely care about my learning and my success. They have shown me how to be an effective communicator in the workplace. Earning my Communication degree from King University has been a positive life-changing experience in my life."

"The Communication Program at King University Online is an excellent accredited university featuring the most flexible hours possible. King University Online is tailored for the adult learner seeking flexible hours, all the while remaining accredited. King University and the Communication program at King university Online has given me the freedom to complete my college work at the hours that work best for me and my family. I can also still afford time to work at my day job, and still have plenty of time to complete my modules. I recommend King University Online to anyone who works, and still wants to earn a bachelors or masters degree online from an accredited university. The best part is that the teachers are flexible and care about their students!"

"ZMOT: COMM program at King University The Communication program online at King University is a great option for an adult learner that is wanting to work full time while earning a bachelors degree. The Communication program is a part of an accredited university that has an excellent online college. King University gives me the opportunity to travel for work while taking classes online. I love being able to access everything I need through Kings online program and not having to attend campus classes. The employees at King University make enrollment incredibly easy and fast. The employees will answer any questions you have about the program and are very easy to communicate with. The financial aid team at King University are organized and professional about making sure you understand what payments are needed and etc. The financial aid team makes it extremely easy to start up which made it less stressful for me. Taking Communication online does require a lot of work, but I like how the program has one class every five weeks. The assignments are challenging, but very doable to incorporate into my busy schedule. All the professors are very caring and helpful whenever I have any questions. I like that King University has a Knoxville campus so if I have any questions I can easily swing by and talk to someone. I think every course I have taken related to the field of communication and has prepared me for my future career. I encourage anyone who is searching for an online Communication program to contact King University. The employees at King University will be more than happy to you in any way possible."

"I appreciate the convenience of King Universitys Online Communication Program. Transit time to a physical campus is eliminated. I can work on schoolwork at home or in another country, in a car, on airplane, wherever Wi-Fi is available and whatever the time of day or night as long as I meet the deadlines. This flexibility is a huge plus for me and my busy life. I am an adult juggling many responsibilities. Traditional class times just dont work well for my schedule. As a disciplined adult learner I work best on my own schedule and in my own surroundings. I love the accelerated, concentrated five week courses King Universitys Online Communication Program offers. King Universitys Online Communication Program allows me to focus on one class and still be a full time student. I found King University to be affordable. King Universitys accredited Online Communication Program has fit my lifestyle and my budget! I will be very pleased when I graduate soon!"

"The online communication program at King University is a great option for an adult learner who is looking for an online communication degree! It allows me the opportunity to complete all of my classes needed to obtain a bachelors degree, while not needing to attend classes on a campus. The employees at King University are extremely helpful throughout the whole enrollment process as well as when classes are in session. If I have any questions, there is someone available to speak to who knows the answer. The financial aid team is outstanding and helped me understand exactly how my financial aid would work. The people employed at King University treated me like family and made sure I was well taken care of. I was very surprised at how easy the process was to get started! The work required in classes is more than just busy work. I feel like the assignments push me to learn more about the subjects, rather than just read and forget the information learned. The assignments also strongly relate to the field of communication and will be extremely helpful in obtaining employment after achieving my degree. The classes and assignments cover a multitude of areas within the field of communication. They include communication, editing, marketing, and public relations. I strongly encourage anyone who is thinking about attending an online college for a communications program to look up information on King University. I feel it is one of the best online degree programs for an adult learner."

"When I started looking for a Communication degree I knew that it would need to have a flexible schedule that could work around my family and my newly acquired full-time job. King University accelerated Bachelors of Science in Communication degree met all of those requirements and more. I live in North Carolina and commute to Knoxville attend class. People have commented that I must be really passionate about education to drive 225 miles one-way to attend class; however, Kings program is not only convenient but also affordable. Kings graduate and professional studies program offers online classes or meets, in person once a week to accommodate a busy working parent like me. The instructors were always knowledgeable and willing to work with students in the way they need to be successful. As an adult learner; the skills that I acquire can be applied immediately at work. Ive also been assisting my husband in bettering the advertising for his business as a carpenter. I will have earned my degree in only 16 months thanks to the accelerated degree option that gets me one step closer to my dream of being a communication instructor. I will start my Masters degree program in January and I feel like I have the needed knowledge and skills to thrive in that program thanks to King University!"

"King University’s online program is a perfect fit for on the go individual. The instruction is top notch and the classes are set up on a five week rotation. The average class size is not very large and allows the opportunity for conversations with your professors. The flexibility of the online classes allow you to do your assignments when you have time. Since King is a private institute you do not pay the large tuition prices you would at state schools, so this makes it very affordable. As a transfer student from a local community college I found that the 16 month program to gain your Bachelors in Communication is very concentrated and super structured. Success coaches check with you on a bi-week period to make sure you are doing well in you classes and if you need help. Plus, as an online student you never have to step foot on campus, or you can do like I did, take a ride down and get the grand tour. The admissions staff is amazing and very welcoming. The instruction, program structure and the constant support are what make this COMM program far and away the best around, so I encourage you to not only take a look at King University, but let the Christ centered values take you to the next level of your education."

"I am currently enrolled in the online communication program at King University. King University has been the perfect place for me to earn my Bachelors of Science in Communication because the courses are 100% online. I work full time and I never thought I would be able to manage my career and earn my bachelor’s degree at the same time. King has made my dream a reality with their online courses designed for working professionals. King, an accredited college, allows students to easily and quickly earn a bachelor’s degree in about 16 months. My courses have taught me so much about all different types of communication, such as public relations, advanced speech, and leadership communication. Courses are taken once at a time for 5 weeks; once a course is completed students are moved on to the next course automatically. King makes it easy by having access to the best advisors and professors who are available when you need them. I would recommend the Communication program to anyone looking to communicate effectively and build their career."

"King University’s’ Communication program online is the perfect fit for me. I am a single Mom with many responsibilities including working 2 jobs. I began school over ten years ago and was unable to complete it due to getting married and traveling with my husband I decided to leave my senior year after completing most of my Broadcast Communications courses. When deciding to return, there was no offering in the field of broadcasting online. A friend convinced me to look into Communication (Comm) which would enhance my personal and business communications. It made perfect sense. I have been working as a broadcaster for almost 20 years. I did not feel like I need additional courses in Broadcasting. I work in the ever changing field of broadcasting and I have not had any trouble changing with it. One thing that adults who decide to continue their education should consider is this, some colleges do not transfer credit if the credits are more than 10years old. It was very difficult to find a school who would transfer my credits. King was one that did. I looked at many reviews about the Comm program and I must admit, everything is exactly like I have read. The registration process was easy, I was walked through the process step by step. King is also a Christian college which means they can relate to me on a personal level too. The class schedule was very flexible. The cost is very affordable and the school is fully accredited. These things were very important to me as a person on a budget with limited time. After getting accustomed to the school blackboard you will maneuver with ease and skill just as I do."

"When considering the accelerated online communications program at King University, there are many advantages and disadvantages for the adult learner seeking to achieve a Bachelor’s degree. Advantageous components include the convenience of completing the course work as your schedule allows, the flexibility of earning your bachelor’s degree from an accredited University in accelerated fashion, and being part of a faith-based institution which welcomes spiritual dialogue on behalf of both students and instructors. That being said, I found several disadvantages to the program that did not meet my expectations. Unfortunately for the working adult learner, the fast paced format and course load make it almost impossible to retain a majority of the information being taught. Perhaps a new college student who is not fully engaged in their career may have a different experience, since they could fully dedicate their entire attention to their program of study. I am certain that if I were a full-time student without work responsibilities and commitments, this program would have been more beneficial to me in the retention of communication content. Despite that I was unable to retain a majority of the information being taught, my ability to keep up with the busywork in each module allowed me to remain on the Dean’s list each semester. Like many of us who are working full time while attending class, many adjunct professors likewise worked secondary full-time jobs, which I feel limited their interaction and communication with the students. Feedback and grading was not always timely, which included questions pertaining to specific course assignments and content. In some instances, I received feedback on assignments too late into the course to incorporate the recommendations into my work for future assignments. That aside, all the professors were extraordinarily professional, knowledgeable, and helpful in assisting students in reaching their goals. Overall, I was able to successfully able to complete the Communication Program at King University and would recommend the program to others, especially those not engaged in full-time work commitments."
