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. This program offers opportunities for observation and for participation in the community that are accompanied by a substantial academic component and mentored by members of the faculty. 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.
