In place of a field assignment (outreach) after the School of Photography I (SOP I), photo internships are possible for individual students. Internships are 12 week, 12 credit courses, just like the schools they’re linked to. Students build on the foundation of the SOP I by working in hands-on, practical ways, supervised by a professional photographer in businesses or mission groups for 40 hours of work per week. The 12 weeks need not be immediately after the SOP I, but do need to be started no later than 1 year after the student finishes their SOP I. The 12 weeks need to be consecutive, but the dates need not match UofN-Kona quarters.Learn more about SOP
