Concordia's Master of Education program strives to combine theory with practice, enabling you to create a practical and engaging classroom experience.
Through this program, I gained a community of teachers. Being in touch with those resources and role models is a tremendous gift.
This program galvanized me to be a more aware, theoretically grounded, and adventurous teacher. I was pushed to critically examine my methods and improve them.

I gained so many ideas from experiences at Concordia Language Villages about how to make language learning fun. I try to recreate that in my classroom.
This program has definitely affected my teaching practice. I can't imagine planning a unit now without thinking about the ACTFL Standards and using performance-based assessments.

My favorite thing about the online classes is the relevance of everything we do. All our major assignments are lessons, assessments and unit plans that we can actually use in our classroom.
Then, on top of that, I get to study my students' reactions to the things I create! This class has really encouraged me to reflect on my teaching philosophy on a day-to-day basis.

I was really amazed by the work that I saw in Concordia Language Villages (CLV). I was encouraged to adopt their strategies and way of teaching.

Teachers with advanced degrees can expect to earn $2,000-$10,000 more.
Our low cohort to instructor ratio means personal instruction is the norm, not the exception.
