Field Work Term: The World is Your Campus

Each academic year, students participate in a seven-week, off-campus winter term called Field Work Term (FWT). During each of their four FWTs, students take their interests to the world beyond Bennington, where they pursue jobs and internships in areas that complement their studies. By the end of their time at Bennington, students graduate with a résumé as well as a diploma.
