It is not too late to sign up to study abroad next year
with these amazing Augustana International Programs
Spend next Spring living with a family in Ghana, completing an internship in a hospital, school, businessor with an international aid organization, and earn credits in Music (PH), Art (PL) and History (PP) as part of the Spring Term in Africa. This program includes airfare, housing, family meals, excursions to the ocean, historical sites and a safari, and with Augie Choice this program will cost you less than a standard term at Augustana.
Study Buddhism and Ecology on campus next Spring, then jet off to the Indian Ocean in June to complete your studies with three weeks in Sri Lanka. Imagine hikes in the rainforest, enormous Buddha statues, elephant sanctuaries and temples. It is much more than a trip, it is a transformative experience that might just change the way you think about the world and your role in it.
Whether it is studying japanese language in Kobe or giving your major a global outlook in Germany, an exchange might be the right choice for you. We offer three Spring exchanges (March-June) in Germany with options to study in English, German or a mix of the two. Our Spring exchange in Kobe offers you the chance to take a full year of Japanese in 1 extended term (April-July). With both programs you pay standard Augustana tuition and housing is arranged by the local university. Both programs provide the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in a new culture.
Information on 2015-2016 programs, including summer 2015 will be available soon, with the Study Abroad Fair in October, 2014 and applications open from November 2014 until January 2015.
