Field work is an academic program that is sponsored by departments for ungraded credit by placing students in a variety of internships in Poughkeepsie, the mid-Hudson region, New York City, and elsewhere. It provides opportunities for observation and for participation that are not ordinarily available in traditional classroom work.

Every student electing field work is supervised by a faculty member who helps the student integrate experience with theory. Students may need a pre- or co-requisite course in the sponsoring department. Internships during the summer may also be eligible for academic field work credit.
