Academics

 





Knox College is consistently recognized in national rankings for its quality academic program -- in fact, Knox was most recently ranked as a "Best Value College" and one of the "Best in the Midwest" by The Princeton Review. And perhaps even more important, the majority of our students -- 98.5 percent of first-years, to be exact -- chose Knox because of that reputation for academic strength.

Knox is a vibrant community of artists, scientists, thinkers, and dreamers. The breadth and depth within the liberal arts curriculum at Knox allows for educating the "whole person," as we like to say. Or, as Loren Pope says in Colleges that Change Lives, "There is no better college in the country for developing a young mind and character ... Students are challenged to analyze, develop, and express ideas logically, clearly, and with style."

Our three-term academic year is designed for a richer academic experience. You'll take only three classes per term, allowing for greater breadth and depth in each class. And your professors will teach fewer classes, allowing for more one-on-one attention in and out of the classroom.
