Knox College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1)
After Knox, I went on to get a master's degree at the top U.S. creative writing program, the Iowa Writers' Workshop. I think anyone getting a degree in English or creative writing should expect an uncertain job market, but I have remained continuously employed in fields related to my degrees, such as college teaching, editing and professional writing. Knox is a liberal arts college, and the liberal arts model encourages students to take lots of courses outside their major. I minored in religious studies (with many of my credits coming from abroad study in Japan, studying Buddhism through Antioch College) and took six political science courses for a comparative politics minor. These experiences broadened my education beyond what a single major can provide. Making the humanities, rather than science or engineering, the focus of your education is always a gamble, but I am grateful for the base of knowledge and habits of mind that these courses gave me.
