Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

I am just beginning my graduate program and so far I am impressed with the ease of communication as well as the online learning system that they have developed. It is one of the higher priced masters programs, so I think it could be made more affordable.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

Pro, great instructors who are either veterans or still practicing in the field of education. They're years of experience offer students a real life view on education and many resources to advance ones craft. Con, at times very hard to reach faculty or get a timely response to ones needs. My offsite cohort had to struggle with poor communication from our program advisor.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the pros of Concordia's graduate teacher certification is that they offer a full-time and a part-time track. Taking the part-time track has allowed me to work and not go into additional thousands of dollars of debt by living completely on loans. A couple cons are the cost (private school!) and the mostly white, middle and upper class, Christian student body. Diversity is lacking to say the least.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the pros of this graduate program are the diversity of students, the knowledgable faculty, the subjects taught and the study abroad component.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I absolutely adore my advisor. Brian has gone above and beyond to help me get started in the program. I cannot say enough positive things about him, or the program that I am in. I love how everything is laid out, and that everyone has been beyond friendly and helpful!

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros would be the people who helped me get into the program, and those who helped answer any of my questions along the way. A con would be the time difference between me and the school. This made it a little difficult for me to get a a hold of anybody, until we began to email each other.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel as if the program has you apply life skills in education in order to see what will work and will not work. It also offers great support from the professors and college. Some down falls would be the work load it is very difficult at times.
