A Concordia education is meaningful preparation for real life not only because of the career knowledge and skills our students gain, but also because we help them acquire greater self-understanding and achieve a growing realization of their abilities and interests. This opportunity to explore their vocation in home, workplace, community and congregation gives our graduates an education of lifelong value as they engage in thoughtful living and dedicated service.
Concordia is devoted to providing an educational experience that is real preparation for thoughtful living and dedicated service. We prioritize:
The coursework in our fully accredited programs (all taught by professors, not teaching assistants) is directly applicable to real life. Our metro location is home to Fortune 500 companies and a wide array of employers, so Concordia undergraduate students turn theory into practice at internships and jobs, and adult learners in our cohort and graduate programs apply their learning immediately in their professions.
Meaningful Life Preparation
We focus on education for vocation in home, workplace, community and congregation by helping our students acquire greater self-understanding and achieve a growing realization of their abilities and interests.
We prepare students for dedicated service to God and humanity and for the enlightened care of God’s creation, and the service-learning portion of our curriculum combines meaningful community or public service with academic learning and personal growth.
Fulfillment of High Need
We recognize an obligation to provide access to higher education for qualified students from traditionally underserved populations, including first-generation college students and low-income families.
