Concordia College was dedicated Oct. 31, 1891, only 10 years after the first Norwegian settlers had made their home in the Red River Valley. These settlers valued education and their religious heritage, and one of their first priorities was to establish a quality school.


Concordia offers more than 50 majors, including 15 honors programs, as well as 12 preprofessional programs in medicine, law, engineering, dentistry and more. Hundreds of internships and cooperative education opportunities in town and around the world provide plenty of firsthand professional experience.
