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.
