Curriculum Integration

The Study Abroad Curriculum Integration project is an effort directed by the Office of International Programs to internationalize Augsburg College by collaborating with academic departments to integrate existing study abroad programs into the curriculum.

Project Goals:

  • Develop ownership of study abroad outside of the Augsburg Abroad office.
  • Create department-specific study abroad materials.
  • Effect long-term institutional change in the form of a more internationalized academic experience.

Project Activities:

Spring 2007 Survey

This survey assessed the knowledge and perceptions about study abroad with faculty/staff and students and will provide baseline data as we move forward with the project. Survey results below.
