At PLNU, we believe building your professional experience and portfolio of work shouldn't wait until after graduation. That's we internships are required for all visual art and graphic design majors — to provide you invaluable on-the-job skills and professional connections in the vibrant art and design community.
Internships expose you to off-site experience working 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. PLNU students have worked with professional artists and designers, agencies, design studios, museums, galleries, and many more. Internships are a vital part of our students' success after graduation.
