About the School of Arts and Sciences
The Concordia College School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) encompasses the largest, most diverse school at the college. Arts and sciences offers the full range of undergraduate programs associated with a liberal arts education — humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences, as well as preprofessional programs. The breadth of programs in the arts and sciences is the hallmark of a liberal arts education.
What is the School of Arts and Sciences?
The School of Arts and Sciences is the core foundation and heart of the identity of the liberal arts college of the ELCA. All students complete the Core Curriculum, a broad foundation characteristic of a liberal arts approach to education. As such, all Concordia students in the three schools, no matter their major, are students in the SAS. This affirms the key principle: Three Schools, One College. The 18 departments and nine interdisciplinary programs offer a wide array of subjects of study. Students are equipped with a wide variety of skills, including effective communication, critical thinking, and the ability to work collaboratively.
