3 Ways To Experience Your Education
Many of our majors—and minors—pursue College Honors or other independent research, which allows you to apply what you learn in the classroom to hands-on, real-world situations. To support your research, Knox offers a Power of Experience Grant of up to $2,000 for research, internships, community service, or study abroad.
Here are a few the recent research projects undertaken by political science students:
Knox has plenty of ways to study political science cross culturally and in action with the variety of off campus programs. Study the Setswana language and learn about the political system in the Botswana: Development in South Africa program, or take part in cultural excursions taking part in the Jordan: Middle East and Arabic Language Studies program. Another great off campus program is the Washington Semester, where you attend classes and intern in DC, to see politics in action.
Recent internships in political science have included: Illinois General Assembly, Legislative Research Unit; Project Vote Smart; U.S. Senate; NATO, Brussels; International Red Cross; Illinois Democratic Party; Illinois Republican Party; Illinois Board of Higher Education; AIPAC; Illinois State's Attorney Office; and Knox County Court-Appointed Special Advocate's Office.
