The goals of a Knox education include preparing you to pursue your life's ambitions, whatever they may be, personally and professionally. You may come to Knox with a goal in mind, or you may discover your calling after immersing yourself in studies and getting to know more about the world and its many peoples.
Knox graduates take what they've learned to top positions in management, industry, and the arts, or apply it to a wide range of community and public service pursuits. Others continue their studies in top post-graduate programs across the country and around the world.
Knox will be with you every step of the way to help you get the most from your studies, your research and experiential learning, and from life with your fellow students. And that includes helping you define and follow a clear career path you set for yourself.
