Horizons Student Presenters

Horizons presentations include posters, videos, and art displays in order to communicate the wide variety of approaches to undergraduate research conducted by Knox students.

The projects also explore a range of academic disciplines, including art, literature, psychology, mathematics, political science, and gender studies. Experiential learning opportunities that will be presented include a study abroad experience, an apprenticeship, and participation in directing a play. Students will be better prepared to carry out higher-level academic research as a result of their experiences in undergraduate research at Knox.
