Law & Criminal Justice

Be a Community Superhero

You love to be in the middle of things - to be in the room where it happens, whether it’s where laws are made, serious historical scholarship is conducted, or in the halls of justice. 

You served as a class officer, hallway monitor, and on the debate team. Now you’re looking forward to learning more about political science, criminal justice, the law and history, but you don’t want to spend all your waking hours getting all your instruction out of a book. At Keuka College, you won’t have to. 

Our unique Field Period® gives you FOUR opportunities to get out into the community and do meaningful work in the area of your choice. You might get to work on a political campaign, study historical sites, or learn how to be a mounted police officer. The options are only as limited as your hopes and dreams, which we imagine are nonstop. That’s why we believe a small liberal arts college on the shore of a beautiful lake (we have a beach on campus!), with a faculty that’s committed to your success, is the best place to write the first chapters of your success story.

My Field Period® experiences with Oneida County Probation, Ontario County Stop-DWI, the Oneida Nation Police, and the U.S. Marshals Service helped me discover which CJ field I wanted to pursue a career in.

Keuka College helped me gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence I needed to earn my dream job in probation and make a difference in my community.
