The Field Work Term is a vital component of the Bennington College curriculum, turning theory into practice as students explore connections between academic pursuits, personal interests, and the world of work. The College seeks to support students by providing a space for creating student-centered experiential learning opportunities that complement their respective fields of academic study. The Employer seeks to help train students with industry-specific and general work-readiness skills. In consideration of the mutual goals of the student and the employer, the requirements of Field Work Term are outlined in our Student Employer Agreement. These guidelines are not all-encompassing. They are intended to serve as a framework within which the Field Work Term and career planning process should function, and as a standard of professionalism to be upheld.
