Every academic experience at Concordia is built upon a liberal arts foundation, challenging students to think deeply, while developing the ability to communicate (write, speak, tweet) 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 (PEAK) take students out of the classroom and immerse them in new communities, cultures and experiences to prepare leaders for a world of change.
Our BREW (Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World) philosophy is much more than an educational theme — it’s a way of life. Every course challenges students to discover connections between the subject matter and the impact it has on themselves and the world. Upon graduation, students have a strong sense of how they can use their talents for leading a world of change — in their first job and throughout their life.

Student body profile
The Concordia curriculum encompasses more than 120 areas of study, including 12 preprofessional programs such as medicine, law and engineering.
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.
