Online community of learners.

Most degree programs require a local site or campus through which you earn your degree, but that is not the case with online bachelor's degrees offered through Concordia University Irvine. With our flexible online delivery format, you can live and work anywhere and take all of your courses to earn your bachelor’s degree online.

The design of our online curriculum makes use of some of the most innovative techniques in distance learning today. But we also recognize that students in online programs benefit from periodic real-time sessions. That’s why each of your courses will include regularly scheduled class times with your professors and peers. In these two-hour online sessions, which are scheduled once during the first, third, and fifth weeks of each course, you and your classmates will participate in live lectures and discussions. This blended delivery system provides the opportunity to engage with our excellent faculty and network with other students in your cohort, while still offering the flexibility of a fully online degree program.

I chose Concordia because of its faith-based foundation, which tends to attract higher-quality students and more involved faculty. I chose the Healthcare Management program because of the growth and potential in the healthcare field.
