Augustana offers an educational program that is both international and intercultural in scope. Believing that interpersonal, intercultural, and international relations are a vital aspect of a student's education, the college regards the whole world as its classroom. When we learn about others, we also learn about ourselves. As changes in communication make the world more interdependent, 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 their StudioAbroad portal.
