Programs of Study
The King’s College offers a different kind of liberal
arts education. Most liberal arts colleges today present a smattering of
courses from across the disciplinary map. The King’s College offers a more
focused liberal arts degree, built upon carefully- developed courses that
train students to be philosophically and theologically informed about the
nation’s (and the world’s) key institutions. We take ideas seriously because
we love the truth and because we recognize their role in forming and
transforming nations and cultures.
This degree is given structure by a group of twenty courses in our
“Common Core,” taken by all King’s students. Specific major and minor
classes build upon this foundation in ways that preserve the coherence of a
student’s education. Obviously, this is an unusual approach to undergraduate
education. But offering an unusual approach seems perfectly suited for our
time and place. To challenge, change, and improve our culture, we need
people with a deeply-informed understanding of society, razor-sharp
intellectual abilities, inexhaustible energy, and spiritual grace. It is our
desire that every graduate of King’s be such a person.
A college with our vision and mission belongs in a city that is just as
unique – and important in shaping our cultural, political, and economic
lives. It belongs where it is: right here in the center of New York City.
Our programs include:
Media, Culture, and the Arts
Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE)
All built on our common core.
