Semester Programs

Augustana offers an educational program that is both international and intercultural in scope. The University believes that interpersonal, intercultural, and international relations are a vital aspect of a student's education. When we learn about others, we also learn about ourselves. One of the best ways to increase our knowledge about ourselves and our world is to study abroad or in an off-campus setting.

The time to start thinking about and planning for a study abroad or off-campus experience is now! Augustana students can search for the perfect program using the StudioAbroad portal.
