Every academic experience at Concordia follows the liberal arts credo of challenging students to think deeply, while developing the ability to communicate (write, speak, tweet) persuasively. We push students to learn and experience what they are learning. The results? Being wholly capable of handling anything the world throws their way. The new Offutt School of Business blends liberal arts learning and a globally immersive business education. Concordia’s world-class music program features 19 performance ensembles while varsity athletic programs in 22 men’s and women’s sports have produced an NCAA Woman of the Year finalist and nine recent NCAA Postgraduate Scholars. Emphasizing “hands-on” experience and leadership shaped by a rigorous examination of faith and values, Concordia provides a transformative education for the whole self, for the whole of life, for the sake of the whole world.
