King University is an accredited online and traditional university. There was no application fee or hoops to jump through for admittance. I attended the online communication program. The online communication classes at King are 5-week courses. The classes require a lot of attention and dedication to work since they are condensed. Most of the professors in the program have been very accommodating and insightful. The communication program itself has strengthened my written and oral communication skills, as well as my organization, critical thinking, and leadership skills. These skills have all been beneficial in my professional life and have shaped me into a better employee and leader at my organization. Overall, I rate the online communication program at King University five stars and highly recommend the program for anyone seeking to advance at their current employment or strengthen their employable skills to start a new career.

Having taken a 4-year sabbatical from my education, I wanted to back to school and finish my degree. I wondered if going back as an adult would be worth my time. I knew I wanted to study communication, but I was unsure how or where. King University settled all of my worries by offering a low cost 2-year online bachelor’s degree from an accredited college in the communication field. King University is rooted in Christian academics and provides flexible schedule catered to students who also have full time work and home lives. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed the King University Communication program. The professors are experts in all communication fields and develop students capable of entering the workforce with confidence in their communication skills. I learned many valuable strengths that will transfer seamlessly into a communication career. I would recommend King University to anyone looking for a fun, focused, and financially sound education.
