Every academic experience at Concordia is built upon a liberal arts foundation, challenging students to think deeply, while developing the ability to communicate persuasively. Our three schools — the School of Health Professions, the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Business — are designed to develop your critical and creative thinking skills while giving you a broad perspective on the world and its people. 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, an NCAA Award of Valor honoree and 10+ NCAA Postgraduate Scholars. Our integrative learning opportunities (PEAKs) take students out of the classroom and immerse them in new communities, cultures and experiences to prepare leaders for a world of change.
In Summer 2020, Concordia took a different approach to the price of tuition. Tuition was lowered by more than 35 percent to clarify the cost of attendance and, more importantly, showcase the great value of a Concordia education. A Concordia education is rooted in the deep commitment the college has to providing a transformational experience to every one of our students through learning, working and leadership.

Student body profile
The Concordia curriculum encompasses more than 120 areas of study, including 12 pre-professional programs such as medicine, law and engineering.
Teacher licensure programs
I chose Concordia because their professors in departments such as religion, political science, and various sciences were willing to learn about differing perspectives than their own – more than many other faculty I met when visiting other colleges. That was the biggest factor for me in choosing Concordia.
