Augustana University launches a School of Music

As a part of Augustana University’s ten year plan, the new School of Music is looking to push education forward by giving students more opportunities.

“We are deploying – developing and deploying more more academic programs, we’ve finished a campus master plan – the most comprehensive master plan the University’s undertaken in many years,” President of Augustana University Stephanie Herseth Sandlin said.

Herseth Sandlin says the new school comes as a way for the campus and students to grow.

“We attract a lot of students from the region who want to contuse with music and perform in ensembles in addition to our students who choose to major in music who want to go into music education,” Herseth Sandin said.
