Why study Visual Art at Augustana?

This program provides a strong foundation in both the history and practice of visual art. It is particularly suited for students who are in the early stages of their artistic development or who have no formal background in art. Submission of a portfolio is not a requirement to apply to this program, and you can choose to focus in either studio practice or art history.

This major is taken as part of a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Why Augustana?

Augustana Campus, located in Camrose, Alberta, one hour southeast of Edmonton, is home to just over 1,000 students from across Canada and around the world. Augustana offers liberal arts and science degree programs in an intimate and personalized setting, with smaller class sizes and a more flexible academic schedule.

Augustana also offers a modified semester system called The Augustana Calendar. Each semester is comprised of a three-week session studying a single course, followed by a more traditional 11-week session studying up to four courses. This gives you the opportunity to dive deeper into research, travel, and other experiential learning endeavors, while at the same time reducing stress and workload.
