My master's program was a cohort & it was wonderful! Convenient location, great group of people that I worked with throughout the two years in the program.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2017

As I am an online student, many areas did not apply to me. However, I used feedback from other students in my assessment. I have a very diverse class and my instructor is very accessible. The coursework is challenging and relevant, two very important things, in my opinion.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the above categories do not apply to the online instructional experience. This may effect the overall rating. The online program has been challenging and enlightening. I'm inspired by our discussions but miss the conversation aspect of attending classroom sessions.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

Concordia's Educational Leadship program is outstanding. The work is rigorous no doubt but purposeful. Instructors have all been supportive and extremely knowledgeable. Staff at the school has so far been very responsive to any needs I have had. I would highly recommend this program to others.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in a hybrid program where most of my class is on-line with the ability to meet face to face 3 classes during the term. I am not on campus to know much more about Concordia. However, the hybrid program has worked very well for me. With a family, full time teaching job, and household to run, it is convenient to meet just 3 times a term and complete the assignments when I am able to from home. The professors I have had are readily accessible and provide opportunities for help or flexibility since we are all teaching on top of taking courses.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The completely online doctoral program really helps with connecting with fellow students across the nation. Everybody (faculty and students alike) are very easily accessible and have been readily available to answer questions and assist with projects.

Degree: Gerontology
Graduation Year: 2016

The flexibility of an online graduate program in Gerontology supports my work-life balance. The course content is applicable to my career and the instructors are top notch. The only con for me would be an interpersonal disconnect from my professors and cohort group. Although we interact online, I sometimes miss the person-to-person contact.
