School of Education

Christian teachers transform lives

Education has been at the heart of Concordia University since our founding. Our roots and our reputation run deep. Concordia’s School of Education continues to prepare educators and administrators who serve and lead with a dual purpose both to deliver exceptional education, while impacting the lives of students, families, and communities across a wide range of educational contexts. Education undergraduate students also participate in the Concordia Core, a rigorous, liberal arts curriculum integrated with Lutheran distinctives.
