Global Studies at Knox College
It's not simply about exploring a new place; it's about connecting that place to what you'll study there, and placing the experience within the context of your overall academic goals. Approximately 50% of Knox students study off campus before they graduate. The Eleanor Stellyes Center for Global Studies helps students find the program that fits their learning goals. Learn more:
