The Board of Regents defines Augusta University as Georgia's health/sciences/medical college. And we are that. Proudly. We are also a dynamic, comprehensive research university offering more than 150 areas of study, across ten colleges through undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.
It’s your life—and wherever it leads you, we’re committed to helping you define it, make meaning of it, and live it on your own terms.
Here, we worry about immunity. In lupus patients who are more susceptible to viruses, yes. But also in the adaptive code that stands between a credit card company’s digital files and the hacker who would infiltrate them.
Here, we pay attention to vital signs of all kinds: Monitors beeping steadily in our teaching hospital. Economic indicators plotted on a smart board in our school of business. The developmental milestones of a first grader tracked by a student teacher onsite at a local school.
And most of all, we think deeply about quality of life. How is it affected by an experimental drug for low blood pressure? How is it impacted by poverty or environmental degradation? What can the performing arts do to enrich it? What can history tell us about how we should define it?
Since 1828, students have come to us in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Today, our campuses in Augusta and across Georgia remain at the forefront of exceptional teaching and groundbreaking research, focused on improving and enriching the fullness of the human experience—for you, for others, for life.
