ROCK ISLAND, Ill. — Attending Augustana College may have just become more enticing for some. Starting in the fall semester of 2023, Augustana will be offering a film major and minor.

The program will consist of a combined theatre and film department. Students will have opportunities to pursue acting, directing, and production design for both stage and screen. 

The new program will mostly be housed in Sorenson Hall which will include a new iMac lab for film majors. Jennifer Popple and Stacy Barton will serve as the program's two associate professors.
