Concordia University has a strong foundation in the liberal arts runs through the entire curriculum. Plus, all students complete two of our signature integrative learning experiences (PEAKs) where the focus is on active learning that occurs outside of the traditional classroom. Some PEAK options include: assuming one of several student leadership roles, taking a non-traditional semester-long course, embarking on a three-week trip abroad or participating in an intensive week-long experience.
Founded in 1891 by Norwegian settlers who valued education and their religious heritage, Concordia opened its doors with 12 students and three instructors.
