3 Ways to Experience Your Education

1. Use Gender and Women's Studies to explore big issues.

Many of our majors—and minors—pursue College Honors or other research and creative projects. Some even present or perform their work at national and international conferences.

Here are a few recent projects:

  • "Poor Women are Survivors: Comparative Study on the Lives of Women in the Informal Sector of India." Nashra Mahmood '17.
  • "Feminist or Not?: Female Leadership on the Knox College Campus, 1960-1975." Rebekah Lean Lauer '14.
  • "Refocusing: Fetal Imagery, Abortion Politics, and the Construction of Motherhood."
  • "A Period of Transition and Redefinition: Post-Communist Polish Female Identity Through the Lens of the Private/Public Distinction."
  • "Stranger in a Strange Land: An Ethnographic Memoir of a Male Feminist."
  • "The Internet as a Site of Identity and Community Formation for Gender-Variant Individuals."

2. Study with the leading thinkers of the field.

There are several programs that explore gender and women's studies across cultures. The comparative women's studies program through Antioch takes students through a number of European countries to explore different viewpoints and histories of women from these countries. Participating in the Community Engagement ACM Program in Costa Rica is a great way to apply your language skills in a realistic setting. You can also challenge your academic limits by direct enrolling at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.

Here are other programs that are available for students interested in Gender and Women's Studies:

3. Explore life after Knox with an internship.

There's no better way to explore the possibilities of life after Knox than internships. Here are a few of our students' recent internships (found with the assistance from the Bastian Family Career Center):

  • Illinois Women's Lobby
  • Family Planning Service of Western Illinois
  • Safe Harbor Family Crisis Center
  • Indiana Women's Prison
