Why Go Here?
Concordia University College encourages a dual commitment to academic excellence and religious vitality. Concordia's main priority is its students, providing small class sizes and emphasizing community. The school focuses on sustainability, with cutting-edge green buildings.
Concordia's department of Biological and Environmental Sciences offers both three and four year BSc degrees, preparing students for a professional career or for further graduate studies. The programs emphasize hands-on learning in small lectures and labs, allowing students to explore the complexity of life and the environmental challenges faced by society today. First year courses can be applied to either Biology or Environmental sciences, giving students time to choose their path of study. Upper year research courses allow students to enhance their academic and networking skills while collaborating with faculty and peers.
Concordia provides student services and clubs for all interests, many of which revolve around sustainability initiatives. The study abroad program allows students to gain international experience at one of Concordia's partner universities. Students can participate in workshops on urban agriculture through the City Farm School or get involved with the campus market stand. Other volunteer opportunities are available through various environmentally focused clubs.
