Notable Academic Programs

  • Graphic Design - The Graphic Design program at Augsburg University offers a unique experiential design studio approach through interdisciplinary teaching of design thinking and problem-solving. This is accomplished through collaboration not only with other disciplines within the University but also local and international community partners. By taking what we refer to as an Agency approach, the program is structured to incorporate the best of a liberal arts degree with the application of professional studies. Embedded in the Augsburg University’s Graphic Design program, design & agency is the ethos and function of a trans-disciplinary design studio. The structure of this studio allows students to work with clients. The process is defined by professors working alongside students to mentor, guide, and collaborate with them through the development of design solutions for clients.
