Where is Bronxville?
The Village of Bronxville, a picturesque and friendly community, offers movies, coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques all within the heart of the Village. It’s only a 12-minute walk along tree-lined streets into the Village or to the train station leading you into the energy of Manhattan (30 minutes by commuter train). A campus small enough to make your mark, yet worldly enough to carry you to your future.
Are there Internships available?
An integral part of each Individual Graduation Plan are internships. College credit can be earned while gaining valuable experience. What better place to prepare than New York City! We have the connections if you have the initiative.
From where has the faculty earned their degrees?
Professors at Concordia are the top in their fields and are graduates of such elite institutions as Yale, Columbia, NYU, University of Pennsylvania, Oxford University, and Eastman School of Music. They continue to learn through travel, study, and research; to publish articles, books, musical scores, and CDs; and are in demand as lecturers both here and abroad. Faculty comes to Concordia for the love of teaching and their interest in seeing students excel beyond the classroom. All courses and labs are taught by faculty, not graduate assistants.
What percentage of students receive financial aid?
Over 90% percent of Concordia students receive some form of financial aid. Concordia’s goal is to use our endowments and institutional aid to minimize debt--making the cost of quality private education manageable. With the high level of financial support, the average debt of a Concordia grad is often less than that of many state school grads.
