Earn your Degree 100% online!
Concordia is a private, Christian, liberal arts university open to students of any faith. Nestled in the Pacific Northwest, Concordia University is committed to the dual purpose of preparing students for life and for a living.
We pursue online learning with the same passion and commitment to excellence that has marked our 100-year history in quality Christian education.
CU Online courses are rich in learner-to-learner and instructor-to-learner interactivity. We balance our courses between offering learners maximized flexibility in terms of coursework completion and the rigor that characterizes a quality (and often condensed) academic experience.
Online courses are not necessarily easier or less time-consuming than are face-to-face courses. Online students form a diverse learning community that requires regular "attendance" and nurturing to maximize the learning potential of all participants. If you are looking for a correspondence course, where you can work in isolation outside of a structured schedule, CU Online courses are not for you. If, however, you are seeking a stimulating - sometimes challenging- environment of motivated learners who flexibly work together to achieve their learning objectives, you have come to the right place!
