Domestic Study & Internship Programs

Augustana offers you programs from sea to shining sea.

Whether it's an internship in D.C. or Denver, or a study program that takes you away from it all, Augie is across America.

For some the desire to study in a new location, or to immerse onself in a new experience does not translate into an international experience.
  With Augustana's domestic programs you can experience a very different pace, style and emphasis of daily living while staying right here in the U.S.A..  Augustana offers internship opportunities across the country, but unique internship programs in Denver and Washington D.C. give you the chance to combine real-world work experience with field-specific coursework.  Our Holden Village Term allows students a chance to step into a quieter world, free from the distractions of our high-tech, fast-paced lifestyle.  Both options are close to home, but far from ordinary.

Those interested in internships should visit THIS SITE for information about Augustana's $2,000 grant program, Augie Choice.
