• You have been given a particular set of gifts...a mix of talents, abilities, traits and temperaments that are unique to you. At Concordia University Irvine, we help you discover and develop your God-given gifts so you can use them wisely in your future.

  • As a liberal arts university, Concordia will not only provide you with the knowledge you need for your major, but we challenge you to develop your gifts by learning to think in new ways. Whether it's through our innovative and engaging Core Curriculum, or opportunities such as the Around-the-World Semester, Honors, and President's Academic Showcase, our faculty push you to open your mind and extend your education even outside the classroom.

  • "Grace Alone. Faith Alone." As a Lutheran university, we hold to this biblical teaching, but it also carries over to everything we do at Concordia. Here you are invited, but never forced, to explore and grow in your faith through our many dynamic worship services throughout the week, Bible studies in the residence halls, and mission trips both locally and internationally.

  • College is the perfect place to explore the gifts God has given you. You can try new activities, think new thoughts, and meet new people. There's always something going on here, and you won't find it hard to get involved. That's what makes the community at Concordia unlike any other university.
