About Augsburg College

Augsburg College offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and nine graduate degrees to nearly 3,500 students of diverse backgrounds. The trademark of an Augsburg education is its emphasis on direct, personal experience. Guided by the faith and values of the Lutheran church, Augsburg educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders.

Augsburg demonstrates its commitments through the work of four signature centers: theChristensen Center for Vocation, the Center for Global Education, the Sabo Center for Citizenship and Learning, and the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work.

Campus information

Augsburg’s Minneapolis campus surrounds Murphy Square, the oldest park in Minneapolis. The University of Minnesota West Bank campus and one of the city’s largest medical complexes – the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview – are adjacent to Augsburg, with the Mississippi River and the Seven Corners theatre district just a few blocks away. Convenient bus routes run by the campus, and two Hiawatha Line light rail stations are just blocks away.

In addition to its Minneapolis campus, Augsburg has a branch campus in Rochester, Minn, located at Bethel Lutheran Church.

Via the Center for Global Education, Augsburg College maintains campuses in Central America, Mexico, and Southern Africa. Programming is also offered in Bolivia, Cuba, Vietnam, and throughout Europe.

Augsburg College is located in the heart of Minneapolis, a city that is home to more than 400,000 people.  Auggies are in the middle of everything. Downtown Minneapolis offers internships, museums, theaters, shopping, and sporting events.
