One of the reasons why Keuka College is the national leader in experiential, hands-on learning is the opportunity students have to take classroom theory and apply it to the “real world.”

At Keuka, students are required to conduct a Field Period every year. They spend 140 hours, typically in January, exploring career opportunities and gaining insight into what it takes to be successful after college.

Recently, 632 students conducted Field Periods in 23 states and eight foreign countries: Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, China, Israel, Morocco, Sweden, and Tanzania.
