PLNU believes you shouldn’t wait until after graduation to gain experience and start producing professional quality work. Therefore, internships are required for all visual art and graphic design majors. These internships provide you with invaluable on-the-job skills and professional connections in vibrant art and design communities.
Internships link you into off-site experiences that will allow you to work directly with professional mentors and gain firsthand knowledge of your industry and craft. Your faculty advisor provides guidance in finding an internship that will challenge you and prepare you for professional life. For example, our students have worked with professional artists and designers, agencies, design studios, museums, galleries, and many more. Internships have been a vital part of our students' success after graduation.
