Learning Perspectives courses, fall 2017

The Liberal Arts Core Curriculum at Augustana includes a wide breadth of courses from multiple disciplines.

By the time you graduate, you will take at least one course in each of six Learning Perspectives: the Arts, Human Values and Existence, Individual and Society, Literature and Texts, the Past, and the Natural World. Many of these courses are taken during your first year at Augustana.

Before attending Orientation and Registration, you should review the courses below and read the course descriptions.

Choose two courses within each Learning Perspective that interest you. If you wish, you can print out a copy of the Learning Perspectives, mark with your favorites and bring with you to Orientation and Registration.

Depending upon your intended major and course availability, you may be able to take one of these classes in the fall. If you don’t get into one of these courses in the fall, you’ll have other terms in which to take them.
