When you invest time and money
in a university education, you have a serious goal - to learn. At Concordia,
we're committed to providing the tools you'll need: a strong program, small
classes, excellent professors and state-of-the-art resources.
Concordia's degree programs
follow the best liberal arts tradition of extensive inquiry across a broad
range of subjects. The courses are demanding, but students who graduate
leave with real knowledge, clear thinking skills, strong communication
skills and lots of practice at hard work - in other words, the ingredients
Small classes and excellent
professors are key to the Concordia learning experience. A typical class
has 25 students. This is considerably smaller than at most larger universities
giving Concordia students almost twice as much access to professors. Most
Concordia professors hold doctoral degrees. They continue to research,
write and contribute to their disciplines. In addition, each professor
is committed to teaching. Your learning is their priority.
All of this is backed by
state-of-the-art resources. The use of computers in the Sciences is a given.
In fact, some of the labs in the new chemistry degree program are delivered
using sophisticated computer simulations where student mistakes result
in warning signs on computer screens instead of smoke in the lab! Concordia
also offers comprehensive library services including an extensive collection
and the ability to borrow from other university, government and private
college libraries in the Edmonton area.
Concordia doesn't have everything
you need to succeed at university. You have to bring your own ability and
hard work, but when you do, you'll like the result.
