Programs and information
J-terms: January and June
J-term programs provide groups of students with off-campus experiences from one to three weeks in January or June. Some programs combine classwork during spring and fall with field experience. J-term programs are led by Augustana faculty.
J-term programs typically offer between four to six credits.
Semester programs include student exchanges, university enrollment abroad, or sponsored study abroad programs through a private educational organization.
Students typically enroll in four to six courses (12-18 credits). Some programs include a full-time internship.
Whether sponsored by Augustana, such as trips to Ecuador, France or Germany, this work is transferable.
A typical summer program is 4-10 credits. Students register their program with Augustana in order to earn transfer credit or Augie Choice funding.
Internships provide academic credit through hands-on experience in the U.S. or abroad. From virtual experiences to full-time on-site placements, internships are available through the college. Internships can be full-time (30-35 hours a week) or part-time (20-30 hours). Generally, housing is provided.
