Concordia University Irvine

Irvine, CA

Concordia University says, 'Concordia's Enduring Questions & Ideas (Q&I) general education curriculum is the foundation for all academic work at the university. Composed of Core and Exploration courses, Q&I provides the essential knowledge an educated person should possess and the intellectual habits and skills necessary to use it well in every area of life. Through this broad intellectual experience, students pursue the general education learning outcomes that Concordia faculty have identified as crucial for achieving excellence in academics and being prepared to serve society and the church as 'wise, honorable, and cultivated citizens.'
