Break & Short Programs

Study on campus, then travel with your classes during break.

Short Programs enhance the classroom experience with field work around the world.

Break & Short Programs may be a single course or a pair of courses (a Learning Community) which includes coursework held at our Rock Island campus during a standard trimester as well as a 10-day to 4-week experience overseas during inter-term break in February or during the first weeks of summer.  These popular programs allow students to have a focused study abroad experience without impacting abiility to participate in academic and co-curricular pursuits during the standard trimesters of the academic year.  Most short programs operate on either an annual or biannual schedule.

All Augustana Break & Short Programs are Augie Choice eligible and many qualify as considered Learning Communities.

You will want to visit THIS SITE for information about Augustana's $2,000 grant program, Augie Choice.


Five Reasons to Consider a Short or Break Travel Program

1. Students with highly-structured majors do not need to miss a term of required on-campus courses.

2. Athletes can travel without disrupting their seasons or training schedules.

3. Students unfamiliar with international travel can experience another country without a long-term commitment.

4. Nearly all Short Programs are designated Learning Communities within Augustana's General Education system.

5. Short programs often target a specific field of study or major for in-depth experiences.
