Concordia University-Montreal

Concordia University is a comprehensive institution offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in Canada. Created by a merger between Loyola College and Sir George Williams University in 1974, Concordia operates out of two campuses in Quebec, Montreal. The university promotes experiential learning, or “I Learned X By Doing Y,” and offers multiple learning models to gain hands-on experience, including through research, community work, and within courses. Concordia is home to a wide variety of research centers, from the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling to the Centre for Behavioral Neurobiology. While Concordia is an English-language university, Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city after Paris. It’s also bike friendly and has been named a City of Design by UNESCO.
