Concordia helped me learn how to think. The emphasis on making a difference in the world is applied daily by the faculty, and the small class sizes mean individual relationships can be cultivated between faculty and students which truly makes a difference.

Communication, Philosophy and Spanish Major
Concordia helped me purse my passions. Because of the freedom in the curriculum, I was able to explore my love of film across multiple disciplines, and my studies took me outside the classroom to Europe and Africa. Faculty, staff and my fellow Cobbers encouraged me to follow my interests and aspire for more.

Philosophy & Psychology Majors
Philosophy taught me how to problem solve and to develop advanced reading skills. The challenges faculty presented in philosophy classes prepared me for the quantity and depth of texts assigned in graduate school.

A liberal arts education really teaches you how think as opposed to teaching you what to think. By learning how to think creatively at Concordia, I've been able to be a very dynamic businesswoman without having ever studied business.
