As an international relations major, I have ample opportunities to learn from professors with real world experience in their fields. There are many opportunities to participate in undergraduate research and to share my ideas not only with the Knox community but with people all over the world. There are many networking opportunities that students will find in whatever major they choose.

Most students at Knox participate in some type of internship/real world experience (it's a graduation requirement). I myself have not participated in one yet, but as an International Relations major, I'm hoping to work with local and international government organizations during my time here.

Music Education is one of the busiest and most time-constraining majors, it's also a smaller one(Knox mainly attracts Creative Writing and Theatre and Psychology). Both the Education major and Music major have a specific set of classes that are best taken in a certain order. Getting into the classes and switching my advisors was fairly easy. They told you what to do and directed you to all the right places, as well as helped you with any paperwork that you needed to fill out and submit. What I really like, is that there are options inside of a require course. For example, for my music division I need to take a seminar level class, but can choose from three different courses- 18th century, 19th Century or 20th century.
Lastly, and what I am most looking forward to, is student teaching my senior year. At Knox, you get your education program finished within the 4 years you're there, unlike other places which require 5years. This means, one you graduate, you're certified to teach anywhere in Illinois and most other states(with the exception of a few, which require just some quick paperwork.)

I enjoy the creative writing program a lot. We have a lot of freedom to write in the way that we need to write. Professors are very understanding of individual creative processes, as most of them have to follow their own as published writers. We are expected to write a lot, but with good reason. We are also expected to read a lot, but again, this workload is necessary if we are to learn about our art and practice it. The workload matters less when we must pursue it in a building like Old Main, which is where most of the creative writing and literature classes are held. It's an old building with lots of history, and its cozy environment welcomes coffee and discussions.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
