Our Four Commitments
You could say that our approach to education has four strands: Christ, Curriculum, Community, and City. Click any of the buttons below to jump to videos on that topic.
Faculty and staff are confessing Christians and seek Christ’s preeminence in all things, giving students a model of full-bodied Christian faithfulness.Go
Students prepare for influence with a challenging curriculum centered on Politics, Philosophy, and Economics in light of a Judeo-Christian worldview.Go
Student organizations, faculty and staff mentors, and membership in the House System embolden and encourage students.Go
Our location in the heart of New York City positions students, alumni, and faculty to shape culture for good.Go
Our Christian faith is the reason we exist as a college. We’re here to help students and faculty influence their corners of society for good–and our understanding of good is inextricably linked to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview. Faculty and staff are all confessing Christians and we teach from that framework. If you’re not sure about Christianity but you want to learn from the Christian and classical traditions, we’re delighted to welcome you to our community.
Dr. Dru Johnson, Assistant Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, shares how The King’s College will help you define and develop your identity in Christ.christian formation
From a Student’s Perspective
Chris Davis (’22) shares how the House system, student-led worship nights, and Christian professors can help you plug in to a local church, serve as part of a community, and form robust spiritual habits.
Dr. Joshua Hershey
What is the relationship between faith and academic pursuit? Dr. Joshua Hershey says that faith has long motivated scientists to pursue knowledge, and as it did for such minds as Galileo and Newton, the evidence for faith may be sufficient to sustain rational, Christian belief.
Dr. Jared Pincin
Dr. Jared Pincin, Associate Professor of Economics at the King’s College, shares his own experience choosing to leave seminary to pursue economics, and encourages students to be open to the unexpected paths God has for them.
Public Reading of Scripture
Join us for our digital Public Reading of Scripture on Mondays at 12:15 PM EDT via Zoom.
There are over 2,000 churches in the City, and new ones are being planted every year. We have listed churches in the areas where most King’s students live.
Every week, a member of the campus community writes a personal reflection on a theme in the week’s lectionary readings. These liturgy notes go out to the community at large.
In ever-changing times, it’s more important than ever to study the things that remain constant. History is full of people who’ve had to think through what makes life meaningful, what allows people to live together in society, and what choices lead to economic flourishing. In addition to courses specific to your major, you’ll study these big questions in a rigorous core curriculum. When you graduate, you’ll truly know how to think and you’ll have a foundation to keep learning the rest of your life.
Start with a mix of writing, history, religious and biblical studies, and what we call PPE (politics, philosophy, and economics) so that you understand how English literature connects to the ideas that have shaped civilizations; then add in the great works in the Western tradition from Homer and Shakespeare to today’s most influential writers.See all majors
