Biological/Pre-Medical Illustration

Practical Experience

BPMI students must complete an internship in order to graduate. An internship is defined as an illustration project done for a client. It may be volunteer work or it may be work for which you are paid. While you may complete an internship at any time, usually this takes place during your junior or senior year.

Past internship projects have included:

  • Individual illustrations for publications and presentations
  • Illustrations for natural science and biology textbooks
  • Field illustration at an archaeological excavation site
  • Interactive programs and animations for pharmaceutical advertising companies
  • Design and production of large public murals.
