At Concordia University Wisconsin, our main goal is preparing students for meaningful lives and careers. As employers realize that the world requires more leaders prepared to make positive change, students are challenged in the classroom by professors who espouse integrity and ethics, traits highly-valued by prospective employers.

There are more than 70 undergraduate majors and 28 graduate degree programs to choose from, along with doctorate programs in Physical Therapy, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Pharmacy.
