The MAIS program allows you to earn a Masters in one year while teaching in China. They combine intense language study with hands on field research. Fast paced, manageable and affordable.
Shawn from Tavernier, FL
The campus is absolutely beautiful and staff was extremely helpful the day I attended an orientation meeting for a masters program. The application process was very simple and so was registering for classes online. All my questions were answered in a timely manner.
Michelle from Santa Maria, CA
As far as people go, everybody here, including students and faculty, are extremely welcoming. Concordia puts on a lot of events, making it easy for residents and commuters to become involved. The atmosphere created by the people here and the amazing location as well make Concordia a wonderful place to go to school.
Damiana from Clovis, CA
Concordia University of Irvine is an amazing Lutheran university, where incoming students will have the opportunity to interact with not only peers, but staff and faculty as well. The best part of CUI is the small student body, which enables students to small classroom sizes and one-one interaction with professors. Lastly, Concordia is a place that will help individuals become enriched everyday citizens.
