Learning Perspectives courses, fall 2019

The Liberal Arts Core Curriculum at Augustana includes a breadth of courses from multiple disciplines.

By the time they graduate, students will take at least one course in each of six Learning Perspectives: the Arts, Human Values and Existence, Individual and Society, Literature and Texts, the Past, and the Natural World.

Many of these courses are taken during the student’s first year at Augustana.

Before attending Orientation & Registration 2019, students should review the courses below and read the course descriptions. Please choose two courses within each Learning Perspective that interest you.

Bring this information when you come to Orientation & Registration. Depending upon your intended major and course availability, you may be able to take one of these classes in the fall. If you don’t get into one of these courses in the fall, you’ll have other terms
in which to take them.
