About Augustana University
Founded in 1860, Augustana is a selective, private, residential, comprehensive (liberal arts and professional) university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Central to our mission are five core values - Christian, Liberal Arts, Excellence, Community and Service - that serve as the foundation for the university's academic and student life programs. Augustana offers more than 50 majors and pre-professional specializations within a 4-1-4 academic calendar. Extensive internship, study abroad, undergraduate research and Civitas, the university's honors program, supplement the curriculum.
