Internships

 





Few experiences prepare you for life after college more than internships. Internships allow you to "test drive" different careers. They give you a competitive edge when you apply for jobs or graduate school.

At Knox, experiential learning is a part of our curriculum -- because liberally educated people must be able to apply their skills and talents to real world situations. And we have an entire center -- The Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development -- dedicated to helping you find an internship and other preparatory experiences for life-after-Knox.

Our students have interned at the Illinois State's Attorney's Office, the United States Senate, International Red Cross, NATO in Brussels, AT&T, American Express, and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, to name just a few. Students preparing for medical school have interned at Galesburg Cottage Hospital as well as with private-practice physicians. Psychology students combine classroom work with intensive clinical internships at regional mental health care facilities as part of Clinical Term. And our journalism students get the feel of a real newsroom by working for The Register-Mail, Galesburg's daily newspaper.
