Visual Arts grads have gone on to work with many prestigious companies, such as Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks Animation, Apple, Netflix, Lucasfilm, Airbnb, and Martha Stewart Living. There are also many alumni working for large ministries like 3ABN, Amazing Facts, and Maranatha Volunteers International, and, of course, Pacific Union College.

The department of visual art fosters a feeling of community that is hard to find in other places. The professors show genuine interest in your life and your work, and will go the extra mile to help you grow. All of our professors are extremely knowledgeable as well, and my classes have helped me learn key skills for my career. PUC is the obvious choice for visual arts within the Adventist school community, because of the quality of work I’ve seen from students and alumni, as well as the department's commitment to excellence. I knew I wanted to learn my design trade the right way and that’s why I chose PUC.
