Study Abroad and Off-Campus Programs

Augustana believes that international and intercultural knowledge and skills are integral to a well-rounded education, and necessary to prepare students to serve in a rapidly globalizing world. As such, the University strives to provide students with exposure to a variety of ways of living, thinking, and being - both on and off campus. Indeed, with literally hundreds of possible study abroad or off-campus destinations, the University regards the whole world as its classroom.

Study abroad and off-campus programs are open to all students who are in good academic standing and sufficiently mature to benefit from the rigors of such study. More information about specific programs - including current study abroad course offerings from Augustana faculty - as well as forms, upcoming events, and contact information for International Programs Office staff members, may be obtained at www.augie.edu/studyabroad or at ipo@augie.edu.


Washington Semester Program

The Lutheran College Washington Consortium is a cooperative program among several four-year Lutheran-affiliated liberal arts institutions. The theme of the semester is Ethical Issues and Public Affairs. Students register for two 4 credit hour seminars, a 6 credit hour internship, and 2 credit hour directed reading. Internships are chosen to meet the student’s academic and personal interests and could be with a member of Congress, government agency, non-profit organization, lobbying firm, public interest group, Washington office of a religious denomination, museum, or theater. For further information, contact Emily Wanless in the Government and International Affairs Department.
