The Center for Global Education at Augsburg College welcomes students from many institutions of higher education (300+). If you are a non-Augsburg student, we can’t wait to hear from you – and please check out all of our other webpages. This page is designed to assist students from our home campus.
- CGE is one of your most affordable study abroad options: Auggies receive a $1,000 automatic discount off of semester tuition, and the total cost is about $3,000 cheaper than studying and living in Minneapolis. Auggies are also eligible to apply for one of CGE’s need-based grants.
- Satisfy your core curriculum requirements: Review our core curriculum while abroad checklist for all the details.
- Programs are community-based: Classroom learning is complemented with real-world experiences. Participants spend most of their time engaging with local citizens, activists, government officials, and leaders. You will be meeting people and seeing things rather than just reading about them!
- Mixture of experiences: CGE introduces you to both home life (via homestays) and group living abroad (students stay together in our study centers). We also ensure you experience both the urban and rural lifestyles. In some of our programs, you are able to visit more than one country.
- Internships: According to the American Associate of Colleges and Universities, 90% of employers expect students to have completed an internship. CGE offers academic credit for internships in 10+ disciplines.
- Career Value: 80% of CGE alumni say their program abroad was valuable in securing employment.
