Augustana is a place where imaginations are fired and intellects are engaged, which contributes to why we consistently receive national recognition for academic excellence in rankings

Performing and Visual Arts

Augustana's long-standing tradition of excellence in the performing and visual arts reaches all students – from majors preparing to enter professions as musicians, actors, visual artists or arts educators, to those simply interested in the arts – and to members of the local community, who can attend multiple performances and exhibits throughout the year.

In music, students have the opportunity to participate in several wind, choral and string ensembles.

In theatre, student actors, musicians, designers and technicians produce four main stage productions per year and are involved in numerous student productions and organizations, including Brand Name Improv and the student-led Augustana Collaborative Theatrical Society (ACTS).

In the visual arts, our Center for Visual Arts houses studios for printmaking, sculpture, painting, ceramics, drawing and graphic design, as well as galleries for professional and student exhibitions and a liturgical art center.
