King’s is a Catholic, comprehensive college in the liberal arts tradition founded in 1946 by the Congregation of Holy Cross from the University of Notre Dame. King’s is located on a small urban campus in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. King’s offers 36 majors in business, the humanities, engineering, social sciences, education, sciences and allied health programs, as well as seven pre-professional programs and 11 special concentrations. With over 50 clubs and activities and 25 NCAA Division III athletic programs for men and women, there is plenty to do outside the classroom.
Small classes and labs allow for meaningful interaction between professors and students. The average class size is 18 students, average lab size is 13 students, and the student/faculty ratio is 12:1. The favorable student-teacher ration means more opportunities for personal attention, which in turn accounts for King’s superior graduation rates.
