The Student Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing the Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at Augusta University.

Ambassadors are responsible for helping welcome prospective students and their families to campus, assisting with new student orientations, and volunteering to represent the College at various campus and outreach events. The College is seeking student ambassadors from diverse backgrounds with proven academic success, character, communication skills, and enthusiasm. Interested students should complete this application.


Hands-On Learning

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.

Student Publications, Internships, and Study Abroad

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.



Pamplin Future Fest: Connecting Students and Alumni

In 2017, Pamplin College helped to bring another valuable networking opportunity to students across the university with the inaugural Future Fest event, during which more than 200 students connected with 21 alumni of programs in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. As working professionals in the community, the alumni provided valuable career insight directly to students.
