Academics

The basic principle behind everything that happens at Knox — both inside and outside of the classroom — is to give students the freedom to flourish.

Knox offers more than 60 courses of study, including 38 majors, 49 minors, and pre-professional and cooperative programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. From your first day on campus, you'll create a personal educational plan that will include a broad foundation in the liberal arts and a primary area of specialization plus a second major or minor.

Majors & Minors

As part of our core curriculum, you’ll enhance what you learn in the classroom through hands-on learning experiences. You’ll produce plays, publish papers, study abroad, present research findings at academic conferences, create sustainable service projects, and otherwise discover new ways to learn, grow, and flourish.

You can pursue research, creative projects, or independent study — as 85% of our students do — with more than $250,000 in annual support from various programs.

We offer nearly 40 different off-campus programs both inside and outside the United States, including both short and long term study abroad programs and programs inside the United States.
