Degree requirements for 2021-22 Academic Year -

NOTE: While the senior audit, program evaluation, academic support resources, as well as academic guidance from faculty and advisors are all available to every student at no additional cost, these resources are provided for use in planning only. It is the responsibility of the student to report any printed error to the Office of the Registrar within two semesters. The responsibility for understanding and meeting degree requirements rests entirely with the student.

The college years develop the foundations of curiosity, analysis and communication which allow learning to take place. Augustana builds on this fundamental education by offering coursework in a variety of disciplines and encouraging thought­ful synthesis of information and new perspectives through careful study in these disciplines.

Graduation requirements for the Bachelor of Science reflect the desire that Augustana grad­uates have both range and focus in their studies, as well as freedom to make academic choices according to their interests. The degree prepares students for a wide variety of graduate, business and professional opportunities. The Augustana Bachelor of Science degree is designed so student can complete a single major in four years or the equivalent of eight semesters. 

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering program aims to educate engineers that will be able to design solutions to problems of the future. This program is multidisciplinary so students will be exposed to Physics, Mathematics, and Engineering, while incorporating ethics, humanities, and social sciences. Students will gain an understanding of engineering that recognizes the importance of human-centered design in all aspects of engineering solutions.

A. General Education and Degree Requirements: All of the same college-wide, General Education requirements are in place for the Bachelor of Science program that are in place for the Bachelor of Arts.
