Every journey begins with a single click.
Or a single step. Or a single bright, brilliant idea. Our study abroad and off-campus study programs are designed to work with the Knox experience. You take what you've studied here out into the world; you gather new information, new ideas, new experiences; and you come back with a new way of seeing yourself, your education, and your future.

Only the beginning of a list of the best things about studying off-campus:
1. You're in good company. About half of our students study off-campus. We tend to attract people who want to explore new cultures, encounter the unfamiliar, go beyond what they know and what they've seen.
2. You're not a tourist. Our off-campus programs aren't vacations. Some of them include internships, research opportunities, or field work. All of them involve close work with faculty and an integrated approach to living, learning, and working in a new setting.
3. We know what we're doing. Our Stellyes Center for Global Studies takes an enlightened approach to off-campus study. For example: You can study off-campus at any time during your Knox career. When you do, your financial aid travels with you. We'll help you choose programs that fit into your educational plan. We offer programs of different lengths (including short-term) -- but we make sure all of our programs feature one-on-one attention that caters to your academic interests and personal goals.
The best part of my study abroad experience has been applying the things that I learned at Knox.
