4 Ways to Experience Your Education
Outside of the classroom, there are plenty of opportunities to enrich your education and get involved. Performance and production opportunities include:
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.
Studying theatre off campus is a great experience for Knox students. Some have studied with the Roger Williams University London Program, attending plays and visiting cultural sites around the city. Others have taken part in the London and Florence: Arts in Context, studying the historical and political context of art and theatre in England and Italy. Studying conservatory acting at the Gaiety School of Acting provides an immersive experience in Dublin while honing students' performance skills abroad. A bit closer to home, ACM Chicago Program: Arts, Entrepreneurship, & Urban Studies gives students a chance to explore art in the context of the city, integrated with issues of politics, economics, social justice, and neighborhood.
There's no better way to explore the possibilities of life after Knox than internships. Here are a few of our students' recent internships (many found with the assistance from the Bastian Family Career Center):
