Civitas Honors Program

Why Civitas?

While intellectual challenge is at the heart of an Augustana education, some students desire an even more academically rigorous and focused experience. Augustana encourages those students to become part of the Civitas Honors Program.

"Civitas" is the Latin word for "citizenship." The Civitas Honors Program encourages students to explore the characteristics of citizenship through small, innovative classes that explore contemporary issues as they relate to citizenship on Augustana's campus, in the United States and across the globe.
