Undergraduate
MAJORS

The Biology Program provides a flexible program of academic work in the natural sciences. As a student completes his or her study of biology and other sciences (recommended support courses include organic chemistry, physics, and calculus), the student will develop skills to interpret scientific data, to make use of inductive scientific methods and to integrate understandings with those arrived at from other disciplines. The student’s program is determined by his or her strengths and interests in the areas of biological theory and research, health-related science and medicine, environmental issues, and teaching science.

Concordia’s Business Administration program offers the most important component of business education - reality. Concordia students learn to translate theories and knowledge from their classes into informed decision-making. Before entering the business world, they are involved in courses that address both the people and practical sides of business.

Choose your own path to the classroom: a traditional B.A.in Education, a graduate teaching degree, or a degree for those called to Christian-based teaching. All of Concordia’s Teacher Education programs are fully accredited. Graduates of the traditional track also qualify for an initial New York State Classroom Teaching Certificate and are ready to begin their teaching careers in public, private, or parochial schools. Choose to focus on Early Childhood (birth–grade 2), Childhood (grades 1–6) or Middle Childhood Generalist (grades 5-9). 

Education is an exciting field where you can make an impact on the lives of children every day. Qualified teachers are in demand and highly valued. Our Five Year program prepares you to be a highly effective teacher in both general and special education programs across numerous settings including public schools, communities, private schools, and faith-based institutions. In today’s competitive job market, having your Master’s degree and a Special Education background will help set you apart from other applicants.

Concordia's Criminal Justice major prepares students to pursue graduate school opportunities and/or enter careers in a broad spectrum including criminal justice administration, forensic investigation, counseling, corrections, juvenile justice and public welfare. 

The Health Studies Program is designed for students who are interested in exploring health-related fields. The curriculum prepares students for administrative health care positions in hospitals, health departments, health agencies, and the general health care industry. 

Many students today have varied interests, talents, and gifts and are often hard-pressed to narrow their college experience into one major. The Interdisciplinary Studies major is a unique program which provides students freedom, flexibility, and creativity to design their own major by combining  two or three academic Concentrations into one cohesive major.  The Signature Concentration is a self-designed collection of classes that students and their advisors choose together to create a unique and personalized education. Courses can be chosen from across the College Catalog, or from specific areas outside the Arts and Sciences.

The nursing undergraduate major will prepare you for an exciting career as a professional nurse. The curriculum is fully integrated with the arts and sciences and will provide you with all of the tools you will need to practice in the fast-paced and ever-changing health care system. You will experience health care at the cutting edge as you learn nursing skills in our laboratory and develop hands-on practice in hospitals, nursing homes, mental health and visiting nurse facilities in the Westchester County and New York metropolitan areas. Classes are small, the faculty, nationally-known, and nursing education is delivered with all the personal touches for which Concordia College is known.

Concordia College has a long history of preparing individuals for careers in service. The Accelerated Nursing program, designed for individuals who hold a Bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than nursing, provides the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in nursing in only 15 months.  We offer a sound educational foundation for practice, clinically competent, internationally known, award winning faculty with excellent teaching and mentoring skills, state-of-the art facilities, and a values-oriented environment.  

Psychologists seek to better understand, predict, and change the behavior of humans and animals through the scientific method. A psychology degree is valuable in a wide variety of fields, since virtually all careers involve understanding behavior.

Concordia offers one of the only Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technologies degrees in the region. A four-year, accredited degree with clinical experience is highly valued in this rapidly growing industry. The need for next-generation managers, professors, sales experts, publishers, professional organization leaders and industry advocates is acute.  With a BS, radiologic technologies professionals will be prepared to fill the gap as today's industry leaders approach retirement.

Concordia's Social Sciences major aims to develop a student’s capacity to explore, explain, and interpret the human experience. Through the disciplines of psychology and sociology, the student will come to better understand and appreciate individuals, society, and the social forces that impact people. 

Concordia Social Work students become involved in a way of life that directly touches the lives of others. Our program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

We offer a thorough and demanding, but meaningful program, including a liberal arts core plus course work in psychology, sociology, human behavior, and social services. Classroom studies take on personal meaning when applied to a full array of fieldwork experiences, working with children, families, the elderly, and the physically and mentally disabled.

Concordia's Judeo-Christian Heritage major offers a comprehensive liberal arts education for those with a special interest in historical and contemporary Christianity, theology and ethics. Biblical and modern languages, history, sociology, topics in Christianity and the world religions join a range of business classes to prepare students for success in church work and leadership roles and/or further theological study.
