Academic Partnerships

The King’s College offers several unique academic opportunities to students through partnership with other institutions. Some of these involve opportunities for visiting students to study through King’s in New York City or abroad, while others provide students already studying on the King’s NYC campus with off-campus academic experiences.

Institutions interested in new partnerships along these lines can inquire by emailing educationalventures@tkc.edu.

Study Abroad Oxford
Study in Oxford

The King’s College is proud to partner with the Christian Council of Colleges and Universities and SCIO (Scholarship & Christianity in Oxford) to offer students a semester-long or summer study-abroad opportunity. Academically qualified students undertake rigorous study in Oxford University programs and participate in Christian community together. Depending on the term, King’s students may earn up to 17 credit hours.

To determine whether you are eligible to study abroad for the semester and to apply, contact Brittany Matheson, Advising Manager: bmatheson@tkc.edu.

Study Abroad Israel
Study Abroad

Study Abroad opportunities are strategic overseas trips overseen by King’s faculty that focus on engaging ideas, learning about institutions, and connecting with people of influence. These programs most often involve earning academic credit or meeting an academic requirement in a King’s major or minor. Through Study Abroad you will have the opportunity to see how some of the principles you are studying in the classroom—such as free-market capitalism, religious liberty, the dignity of human life, and freedom of the press—are shaping the world today, and to augment your learning in other cultural contexts.
