To start, you’ll find inspiration where you learn

Our newest academic programs reflect the changing needs of the world and its fast-growing careers, including Geographic Information Science & Technology, Data Analytics, Kinesiology, and Public Health as well as Musical Theatre and Entertainment & Media.
The Augustana community
Within the Augustana community, you’ll connect what you learn to everything else that makes you who you are. Augustana’s tradition of academic All-Americans is one example of the balance students find between their studies and everything else that matters to them. The College is ranked among the top 10 schools in the nation (and all NCAA divisions) and #1 in Illinois for the number of student-athletes who excel equally in their studies and in sports. This balance will happen through amazing opportunities to play, lead, perform, and explore with support from the mentors and resources you’ll need to follow your intrigue.
The CORE Center
One of our greatest resources is the Careers, Opportunities, Research, and Exploration (CORE) Center—a career center like no other. You can go to CORE for internship, research, and volunteer opportunities; advice on job and graduate school applications; and meetings with career professionals who are focused on your future. Through CORE, every student has access to Augie Choice. With $2,000 from Augie Choice—plus connections from your advisors, professors, and career coaches—you can pursue a life-defining internship, research or creative project, or learning experience in another part of the world.
The world needs you
As an Augustana graduate, you’ll discover that the world needs you—and you’ll learn how to meet those needs. Along with a passionate curiosity, you’ll develop versatile skills and find joy in your own ability to reach your best success and brightest future.
