Pamplin College offers numerous opportunities for students to get involved and make an impact on the Augusta University campus, the surrounding community, and the world at large through internships, student publications, study abroad programs, and other unique and exciting courses and events.
Pamplin programs and departments offer unique hands-on learning learning opportunities for course credit, including The Agency in the Department of Communication, Mock Trial and Model UN in the Department of Political Science, and Writing in the Community, offered by the Department of English and Foreign Languages.
The college and its departments connect student writers with their peers, the community, and beyond, through publications like The Bell Ringer (student newspaper), Phoenix (a student magazine published three times a year), Yell! (Augusta University's Women's and Gender Studies Magazine), and Sand Hills Literary Magazine, which will publish its first national issue in 2018.
Additionally, each program offers internship opportunities at the local, state, and national levels. For example, students within the Criminal Justice program have undertaken internships at the Public Defender's Office and the Sheriff's Department, and Political Science students have served as interns in Washington, D.C.
There are also abundant opportunities to study abroad regardless of major. Foreign Languages students have experienced the culture of Salamanca, Spain, art students have absorbed the legendary creative works of Greece, and Communications students have toured the famous Toho Studios in Japan. With additional experiences including London, Italy, Costa Rica, and New York City, these Study Abroad and Study Away programs allow our students to experience firsthand the vast world outside of the classroom.
