Independent research is a hallmark of a Knox education. From a single-term independent study to a year-long Honors project, approximately 85% of our students complete an independent research or creative project by the time they graduate, and 53% report working on a research project with a faculty member outside of course or program requirements. Knox students may receive help from the Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study with research, scholarship and creative work.
