The department of visual arts takes students on quarterly trips to museums in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as tours of companies such as YouTube and Pinterest, field trips to historic design spots such as the Eames Ranch and M&H Type, as well as longer trips to events such as Sundance Film Festival.
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.

Pacific Union College hosted the Thirty-Second Annual Publication Workshop from September 11-13. This is the first time the workshop was in person since September 2019, and PUC was excited to welcome 12 academies from California and Oregon. The workshop offers training and valuable tips for jump-starting school’s yearbook, newspaper, or video yearbook. Participants get practical, hands-on information from college educators, student leaders, and industry professionals. Through workshops and worship, students can network with advisers, editors, designers, photographers, videographers, and editorial staff.
