At Knox, your research and creative work can take on many forms, including field experiences, creative composition and production, independent study, lab-based research, and collaborative research with faculty.
What's the advantage? Well, many of our students say that independent research and creative work broaden their perspectives, add to their learning experience, and prepare them for grad school or their first career. Plus, they have fun because they are engaging in something they are passionate about!
What can you do after your independent research or creative work experience? Several of our students have had their research published in peer-reviewed journals and presented alongside Ph.D. students at professional conferences.
