The communication program at king University in Knoxville Tennessee is one of the best if not the best communication programs to be ever found in continental America. King University founded in 1867 is an accredited university with over 150 years of experience in providing higher education to people from all walks of life and continents.
The communication program at King is also very family and adult friendly. As a busy real estate business man before enrolling in the communication program at king University, I felt like my dream of acquiring higher education was impossible due to my schedule and family demands but with King it has been possible with flexible hours and very helpful and experienced instructors.
If you are ever look for a quality education at an affordable and accredited university, look no further, King university is the place to be!

I am in my last semester at King University in the online communication program, and I’m about to graduate! King has created their online communication program to be affordable and great for the working adult. I took some time from school to work and save money, and attempted to go back traditionally- unsuccessfully. I decided that I needed to attend online so that I could have time to keep up my jobs. I found that King had an online program that included public relations, marketing, interpersonal communication, and more. I aspire to earn a career in public relations upon graduation and this program has equipped me with the knowledge and skills for that. In an online environment, it is important for the professors to respond to emailed questions in a quick manner, and King professors are great with doing this. I would recommend this program to anyone, especially those with families or full-time jobs.
I am a student at King University pursuing an online Bachelors of Science in Communication. I would consider this one of the best online schools for communication majors because it covers a variety of topics including editing, public speaking, PR, and rhetoric. This program is so effective because it is an online communication program for working adults. I researched many schools when I decided to switch from traditional to online school and the number of universities that did not cater to my needs and that only took a limited number of my credits shocked me. There are difficulties with online school like lack of community and distance from professors, but I have found that they try and help relieve these issues as much as they can as professors. I would definitely recommend King University!
