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.

Political Science and Spanish Major
Political science at Concordia is unique due to the college's global focus. I was able to apply what I was learning in my Spanish and global studies classes to topics we were discussing in the political science program, including taking a political science class during my study abroad in Peru. By far my favorite classes were Constitutional Law I and II. It's like being thrown right into law school. Students are taught how to create briefs, understand precedent, and write case opinions.
