Our immersion terms are a Knox-only experience—a focused, hands-on exploration of a single field of study over the course of an entire term.

Clinical Psychology Term is a unique opportunity for students to understand the functioning of the human mind and to explore careers as clinical psychologists, counselors, and social workers. Students take two psychology courses while simultaneously completing an internship at a local agency that provides psychological services.

Green Oaks Term features interdisciplinary coursework, hands-on research, and the art of building a community; students live and work at our Green Oaks biological field station, 20 miles from campus. 

Japan Term includes courses in Japanese language, history, and Buddhism, and a two-week trip to Japan, where students explore Japan's cities, meet with Knox alumni and local leaders, and complete research or creative projects.

Open Studio Term allows students to assemble an exhibition in studio art, working exclusively on their own projects and consulting with faculty and peers.

Repertory Theatre Term is the most comprehensive undergraduate theatre experience in the country. Students research, design, construct, rehearse, and perform two full-length plays.

StartUp Term brings together students from every academic discipline to transform their original business ideas into real companies. Participants develop a business plan, analyze potential markets, create a product, and sometimes even start earning revenue.

Knox also offers Short-Term Immersive Experiences that combine on-campus study with a trip to another city or country during the next term break.
