INTERNATIONAL & OFF-CAMPUS PROGRAMS

After setting a record for study abroad participation last year, another exciting year around the globe awaits Augustana students. We just sent 74 students to East Asia, and we are expected to send another record number on programs this year, including students and groups traveling to the American West, Australia, Guatemala, Amsterdam, Botswana, Sweden, Hong Kong, Russia, Berlin and Greece.

But, there is no time to waste as the campaign to advertise 2014-2015 programs begin in earnest.  We have another amazing lineup ready for 2014-2015, with term abroad programs each trimester, exchanges, short-term programs and a full slate of summer 2014 offerings.

As you meet with students, please encourage them to explore the IOP website (www.augustana.edu/international) and to consider all the options for next year.  With such a wide range of programs, there is no major, no schedule and no financial situation that should dissuade a student from considering study abroad.  Our office can help any student find a program they can schedule, afford and benefit from.

If you have any questions about upcoming study abroad programs, please contact Allen Bertsche at either allenbertsche@augustana.eduinternationalprograms@augustana.edu or at extension 8283.
