Core Curriculum / Core Requirements

The graduation requirements leading to the baccalaureate degree are designed to provide a broad and liberal education, a mastery of at least one field of knowledge through concentration in a major, and a general course of study that will be in harmony with the program and ideals of Augustana.

Students may graduate under the requirements of the current catalog during the session in which they first enrolled (provided they graduate within ten years from the end of that session), or they may graduate under the requirements of a more recent catalog in which they meet graduation requirements.
