Augustana University offers a number of off-campus study programs that will not only expand your horizon as a student, but also dovetail well into a sociology major. Off-campus study opportunities include:

Sociology Internship

The Sociology faculty strongly encourage sociology majors to participate in an internship, typically during your junior or senior year. Internships not only allow you to gain practical experience in your expected career field, but also provide opportunities to explore how sociological theories and methods of analysis apply in real-world career experiences. Students have interned with organizations such as:

Sociology internships are a great way to see firsthand how your classroom learning applies in career settings!

Study Abroad (International and U.S.)

About 40% of Augustana graduates study abroad during their four years at Augustana University. Although you may not have considered it, the sociology faculty encourage all students to think seriously about spending spring break, an interim, or semester, studying in a different setting. There are a host of short-term and semester long-opportunities for studying internationally. Or if you would like to stay in the U.S., Augustana students can participate in a number of programs, including a semester of education in our nation’s capital as part of the Lutheran College Washington Semester, or other off-campus learning opportunities.
