Career Options with a BFA

With a campus located within driving distance of many Southern California galleries and museums, including The Broad, the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art (LACMA), and Getty Villa, internship and career possibilities are readily available. Through internships, students gain relevant, hands-on experience in various fields related to their interests and goals, allowing students to develop important industry connections.

Continuing Education

Azusa Pacific’s BFA program prepares students for rigorous graduate-level work. While a graduate degree is not required to enter the field, many students go on to complete a master’s program in art, giving students the opportunity to think critically about the integration of faith and their artwork.
