PPE at King’s

The Politics, Philosophy, and Economics major at The King’s College teaches students the fundamental principles of these three “ruling disciplines.” Oxford University created the first PPE degree in 1920 for training leaders of the British Empire. It is the curriculum of statesmen for leadership in any important sphere of life. King’s unique PPE program strengthens this tradition with a coherent core and a biblical grounding. We study the masterworks of each discipline, including the works of Plato and Aristotle, Augustine and Anselm, James Madison, Abraham Lincoln, Adam Smith, and F.A. Hayek. This major explores who we are as human beings: what and how we know (Philosophy), how we live together and govern ourselves (Politics), and how we think about wealth and poverty (Economics), because, as Jesus Christ observed, how we handle those things reveals what—or who—we treasure the most.

Minors

Minors add specialty in an additional discipline, which can communicate expertise to graduate schools or prospective employers.

Culture and the Arts

Students in the Culture and the Arts minor study the cultural productions of world cultures and societies: architecture, sculpture, painting, literature, music, drama, religion, and philosophy.

Business Management

The business management minor equips students from any major with a range of essential management skills, including managerial decision-making, project management, organizational design, and marketing.

Finance

The finance minor equips students to understand financial modeling, investments, and how financial markets function.

History

The History minor provides students with an interdisciplinary introduction to the key questions and methods in understanding what events, peoples, and ideas brought humans to the contemporary world.

International Business

The International Business minor provides students with a broad-based understanding of key issues in international commerce, politics, and economic development, and offers students the chance to explore opportunities in the global marketplace.

Journalism

In the journalism minor, students learn about reporting and writing as well as opinion, magazine, and advanced feature writing journalism. Students can submit to the campus newspaper and hear presentations from top journalists funded by the The John McCandlish Phillips Journalism Institute.

Literature

Students who minor in Literature will encounter a broad range of imaginative works, including the epics of ancient Greece and Rome, the history of poetry in the English language, the plays of Shakespeare, and a sampling of classics from Europe and America.

Media Studies

The media studies minor trains students to examine our society’s conversation with itself and understand how it relates to our public and private choices in areas such as entertainment, newsgathering and life in our ever-changing democracy.

Museum Studies

In the Museum Studies minor and concentration, students will learn museum management and museology, as well as how museums communicate historical narratives outside of a traditional academic setting. This minor will prepare students to work in nonprofit arts management, educational programming, archival library work, or any number of related fields.

Technology, Innovation, and Design

The minor in Technology, Innovation and Design provides students the opportunity to explore various facets of technology and its influence in contemporary culture while also pursuing some basic, highly-sought-after design and technology skills.

Pre-Law

The pre-law minor prepares students to read and evaluate complex legal materials through courses in constitutional law, literature, legal issues, and financial accounting.

International Affairs

The International Affairs minor provides students with an interdisciplinary introduction to the key questions, ideas, and institutions that animate contemporary relations among peoples and states.

Theology

The theology minor builds upon the biblical and theological training that all students receive as part of the Core to equip graduates to bring the light of Christ into their careers and communities in ways appropriate to their callings.

Career Opportunities

Through its commitment to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview, The King’s College seeks to transform society by preparing students for careers in which they help to shape and eventually to lead strategic public and private institutions, and by supporting faculty members as they directly engage culture through writing and speaking publicly on critical issues.

What Our Students Say About Us:

I never expected to attend The King's College. But four years, three international trips, two hurricanes, and one move later, I cannot imagine myself elsewhere. The conversations I have had, the friends I have made, and the opportunities I have been given have provided me an education for a lifetime.

Samuel Tran

Great tour by Marcus. Professional and personal. We came late but he stayed extra long to give us a private tour. And all other staff gave us a warm welcome.

David Kim

The best educational experience I have ever had. The professors, staff and students are incredible.

Max

The professors at King's shaped my understanding of what it means to be a principled leader. They actively help students flourish in what can be a rough city environment.

Natalie Nakamura

I transferred to King's from Pratt Institute for the Business program and have been absolutely satisfied with the quality of professors and the initiatives within the institution are helping to shape me holistically. Living in NYC and attending King's is not an easy feat, but if you are up for a challenge and want to grow both personally and academically, then this college is the perfect catalyst.

Grants

Your FAFSA will determine what grants you qualify for—both from The King’s College and from federal and state government. Grants are need-based and do not need to be repaid.

The King’s Grant is awarded to students who demonstrate need. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for this grant. The King’s Grant is awarded at the discretion of the Office of Financial Aid. The grant is reevaluated each year the FAFSA is completed.

  • Federal Grants

    By completing the FAFSA, students are eligible to be considered for the Federal Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant. Eligibility is determined by information provided on the FAFSA. Students are automatically considered for federal grants; no separate application is required.

  • New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

    TAP helps eligible New York residents pay tuition at approved schools in New York State. Depending on the academic year in which you begin study, an annual TAP award can be up to $5,000. Because TAP is a grant, it does not have to be paid back.

  • Enhanced Tuition Award

    The King’s College is participating in the Enhanced Tuition Awards program which provides tuition awards to students who are New York State residents. Recipients will receive $6,000 through a combination of their TAP award, ETA award, and a match from The King’s College.

Loans

Many students have used federal and private loans to fund a quality education that would otherwise be out of reach. King’s students far outpace the national loan repayment rate.

  • Federal Direct Loan Programs

    By completing the FAFSA, students are automatically eligible to take out loans in their name through the Direct Stafford Loan Program. All students are pre-approved, and no credit check is required. Students with financial need may receive a portion of their Stafford Loan as a Subsidized Loan.

  • First, students will need to complete entrance counseling and fill out the Master Promissory Note. Then, they will accept subsidized and unsubsidized loans in the Student Portal. For more instructions, see our step-by-step Stafford Loan Instructions.

  • Parents of students who have completed the FAFSA are eligible to apply for the Direct Parent PLUS Loan, to cover the student’s balance as well as indirect expenses up to the total cost of attendance, pending credit approval. If the parent’s loan application is denied, the student may borrow an additional $4,000 in their unsubsidized Stafford loan. Apply at studentloans.gov. For more instructions, see our step-by-step Parent PLUS Loan Instructions.
