Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The instructors are great! They give feedback on every discussion that is posted and carry on conversations for the class's maximum understanding. I feel this on-line program is without doubt better and more personal than any traditional style classroom program. The communication is superb from all the aspects of the school's staff. Everyone is on board with assisting all of your needs. Besides the knowledgeable, caring instructors; the academic adviser Greg is Awesome and is always available when I need a question answered. I also offer my praise of excellence to the technical support staff, they are always willing to help and have a great deal of patience. I am extremely thankful I chose Concordia for my graduate choice.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of this program is that it is truly challenging and the professors are extremely supportive and knowledgeable. They are very focused on ensuring that each student not only understands, but retains the information that is being presented. They provide sound, well thought out and valuable feedback for every assignment. The cons of this program is career services for online students is non-existent. There's no where for students to turn for assistance with resumes, mock interviews, career transition etc.
