The Arts

Welcome to The Arts

Augustana University's long-standing tradition of excellence in the performing and visual arts impacts all students, as well our local community and region.

Augustana School of Music

Whether you are interested in a major or minor in music, the Augustana School of Music offers rigorous and rewarding opportunities for those who want to make music their vocation or avocation. In music, students have the opportunity to participate in several wind, choral and string ensembles.
