The Science department offers both academic majors and academic minors, providing students with the flexibility to set their own priorities. A key advantage of studying science at Augustana lies in our small class and lab sizes, which enable greater and more direct contact with instructors. Furthermore, by hosting five disciplines within one department we actively support the idea of inter-disciplinary learning.
