Highlights, Special Features and Opportunities


  • Faculty member Dr. Mike Nitz was awarded a grant from the Norwegian Center for International Cooperation for Higher Education to study Norwegian media coverage of our 2008 Presidential elections (follow-up to published work on the 2004 election).

Nobel Peace Prize Forum

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum consortium sponsors a Peace Prize Forum Scholars program. Two students from each of the five Norwegian Lutheran colleges that make up the consortium will be selected as scholars and awarded a six-week educational experience in Oslo, Norway, designed to deepen their understanding of issues related to peace, justice, democracy, and human rights.


  • Many department majors share what they’ve learned with the Augustana community by tutoring in the Writing Center, where students from all over campus come for help with their writing.
