Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois is one of the few schools where you can actually try out a different major of interest for a semester. For example, students can register for the Theatre Arts program for ten weeks, and during that period experience what it means to major in Theatre.
Knox offers a similar program through the Psychology department. Regardless of one’s major, a student may try either of these temporary majors and, if the interest is there, even make one of them a permanent major.
Committed to encouraging students to think for themselves and venture out into uncharted territories, Knox also offers independent study programs. Beyond these offerings, Knox’s academics consist of majors in the Fine Arts, Humanities, and Natural and Social Sciences. Professional degrees in fields like Occupational Therapy, Law, Engineering and Nursing are also available.
Even when students are enrolled in a seemingly traditional degree program, however, they are always encouraged to think for themselves. Knox prides itself on conducting classes as discussions rather than lectures. Minors and double majors are also encouraged.
Student life further fosters Knox’s commitment to individualism. Student clubs and organizations include just about anything you could think of such as a Classical Literature Club, a student radio station, a Writer’s Club, a Korean Club, a student Jazz Ensemble, a Pagan Student Alliance, community service organizations, an Anime Club and a Health Advocacy organization.
Admission to Knox is based in part on one’s personal essay, an interview and one’s transcripts; standardized test scores are not required.
Once admitted, students will meet with a financial aid counselor to discuss tuition costs and possible financial aid options.
