School of Continuing Studies
Concordia’s School of Continuing Studies offers undergraduate general education and elective courses delivered in accelerated online formats. The courses are designed for adult students and to assist students in building enough general education credits to start one of Concordia University’s adult accelerated degree programs. Through these intensive courses learners can earn up to 36 semester credits in approximately one calendar year. There are no educational prerequisites to enroll in these classes and visiting students are welcome to enroll.
Accelerated general education courses allow learners to:
- efficiently obtain general study requirements to prepare for an accelerated learning program;
- develop skills to be successful in academic work;
- earn foundational credits for a liberal arts education; and
- work towards a college degree, regardless of geographic location or time.
Courses are delivered online. In the online accelerated classes learners collaborate with a community of peers through chats, discussion boards, and email.
Participants will be teamed with an advisor who will assist in creating a class schedule that fits with the student’s work and personal life.
