Many students use the program as a way to complete undergraduate units more cost effectively before committing to a bachelor’s degree program. Here at Concordia, we are competitively priced for that very reason. Frankly, we want to serve you as a learning community and have you consider continuing your education coursework with us.

Some advantages of taking general education courses through Concordia University:

  • Apply your GE units to our Online Bachelor's Degrees and be well on your way to finishing a degree in Business, Healthcare Management, or Organizational Psychology
  • Flexibility to take a course to transfer to another institution
  • Save money on completing your GE units compared to other private institutions
  • Courses are offered in a convenient 7-week format

Online community of learners.

The design of our online curriculum makes use of some of the most innovative techniques in distance learning today. But we also recognize that students in online programs benefit from periodic real-time sessions. That’s why each of your courses will include regularly scheduled class times with your professors and peers. In these two-hour online sessions, which are scheduled once during the first, third, fifth, and seventh week of each course, you and your classmates will participate in live lectures and discussions. This blended delivery system provides the opportunity to engage with our excellent faculty and network with other students in your cohort, while still offering the flexibility of a fully online general education program.

Quality in the core.

Here's another first. We’ve integrated our nationally recognized Core Curriculum into the general education program.

In our six Core Curriculum courses, you will develop your ability to:

  • Read world classics and texts of major cultural significance.
  • Think critically and grow intellectually, ethically, and spiritually.
  • Write with purpose, clarity, and persuasiveness.
  • Connect and integrate what you are learning across multiple academic disciplines.
  • Prepare for real world challenges in your community, in the classroom, or in the business marketplace – wherever your vocation leads you.
