Augustana Campus (Camrose)

Student Population: 1,000 | Average Class Size: 18

Augustana Campus, in Camrose, Alberta, one hour southeast of Edmonton, is home to just over 1,000 students from across Canada and around the world. Augustana offers liberal arts and science degree programs in an intimate and personalized setting, with smaller class sizes and a more flexible academic schedule. 

Augustana also offers a modified semester system called The Augustana Calendar. Each semester is comprised of a 3-week session studying a single course, followed by a more traditional 11-week session studying up to four courses. This gives you the opportunity to dive deeper into research, travel, and other experiential learning endeavors, while at the same time reducing stress and workload.

All Augustana students are encouraged to live in residence.
