Concordia University

Concordia University defines next-generation education by anticipating the future of what a university can and should be. Our research and teaching is daring, transformative and distinct with a “big thinking” approach that examines societal issues from an expansive, interdisciplinary perspective. Concordia is an open and engaged university that encourages students to become active, critical and global citizens. As part of Montreal’s fabric, we are deeply connected to the city — and we are deeply connected to the world at large. More than 46,000 students choose Concordia each year. Globally, we have nearly 200,000 graduates.

L’Université Concordia vous invite à sauter dans le monde de l’éducation nouvelle génération. Tournés vers l’avenir, nous savons ce qu’une université peut et doit être. Nos recherches et notre enseignement sont non seulement uniques et audacieux, mais aussi en constante évolution. Nous voyons grand, voilà pourquoi nous examinons les enjeux sociaux d’un point de vue global et interdisciplinaire. Concordia est une université ouverte et engagée qui encourage ses étudiants et étudiantes à devenir des citoyens du monde impliqués et critiques. Nos racines sont montréalaises et notre ADN est profondément lié à cette ville, mais notre regard, lui, est tourné vers le monde entier. Plus de 46 000 étudiants choisissent Concordia chaque année, ce qui fait en sorte que nous avons globalement près de 200 000 diplômés aux quatre coins de la planète.
