What is Field Experience?

Field Experience enables students to integrate their academic studies with periods of employment related to their career goals. It is a program of educational enrichment designed to enhance students' academic and personal development in preparation for careers. Students are supervised by faculty advisors in off campus full or part-time internship experiences related to their studies and/or career interests. The program is designed to provide students with practical field experience while giving employers access to resourceful students preparing for professional positions. Internships are available in all major areas of study currently offered at Marist.

Internships may be arranged for the Fall, Spring or Summer terms. Since academic credit is awarded upon completion of the field experience, tuition must be paid according to the number of credits attempted.
