The arts at Augustana

Augustana students dwell in creative possibilities. In this community of artisans you’ll meet students who create visual art, make films, write poetry or fiction, take the spotlight or work behind the scenes.

You might be surprised to find that you don’t have to major in the arts to join in. Non-majors have the same opportunities to participate, perform, earn scholarships and even travel the world.

The impact you make is up to you. Find your people and take the first step toward making your passion your profession.
