Thirty-three countries have French as an official language and it is spoken on every continent. You can travel with expert faculty to some of these countries through the college’s global education program. You can also have a chance to live the language right on the Concordia campus by being a part of the French Honor Society or French Club, tutoring children in French, meeting for informal French chats at our French Café or perhaps even living in the French House.

I would have never had the courage to move across the world if I hadn't studied in Tanzania during my junior year. Concordia inspired a lifelong interest in exploring the world and my dedication to working for social justice. I am also grateful for how my Concordia professors always pushed me to become a stronger, more persuasive writer.

I appreciate how students and staff help me with everything--my English isn't the best, but no one cares. Every place I go, people make me feel comfortable. Because of these aspects, I am having a good experience at Concordia.

I credit Concordia for opening my eyes to the wonders of true discovery – the discovery of the self – as I experienced it through new ideas in the classroom and with travel opportunities abroad. I hope I am able to impart to my students some of the same enthusiasm and curiosity I encountered at Concordia.
