Field Periods & Internships
In 1942, a Keuka College graduate and administrator named Edith Estey created Field Period, and it’s been the cornerstone of the College ever since. 

As a Keuka student, you’ll participate in a 140-hour Field Period each year you’re at the college.
This means by the time you graduate, you’ll have significant real-world experience that will give you a tremendous competitive advantage when it comes time to apply for jobs or graduate school.

Field Periods are often similar to traditional internships but may also be a cultural experience, community service project, or spiritual/faith-based exploration.

There’s no limit to where you can do your Field Period, whether it’s around the corner at the local day care center, at aFortune 500 company in a major metropolitan area, or in the national parks of Costa Rica. Field Period is a great way to help you fine-tune your interests, reinforce your choice of major, or explore new career paths.
