A Message from the Dean
Greetings on behalf of the College of Liberal Arts at Concordia University Texas. Whether you plan to attain a major in one of our many disciplines, add a pre-ministry or pre-professional certificate or specialization, or are one of the thousands of Concordia students that takes a class in our College (or simply interested in what we do!), we hope to provide you, through our courses and conversations, a window to understanding the world and the human experience.
The College of Liberal Arts provides a wide range of courses in over twelve disciplines, including English, music, theology, communication, history, psychology and sociology. Through these courses, we help students across the University build a core understanding in the liberal arts. This is the foundation of all university undergraduate programs, as we live out our mission to develop Christian leaders.
- It is a broad approach, designed to empower an individual with the knowledge and skills to think critically and act responsibly as they embrace a variety of ideas, competencies and skills from a Lutheran academic perspective.
- It is a practical approach, and our faculty work closely with students and colleagues to deliver a quality curriculum that both provides detailed knowledge of a discipline and the vision and ability to understand this knowledge. This understanding creates individuals who utilize their knowledge, skills, and gifts to serve the greater good.
- It is a far-reaching approach, as our faculty, staff, and students in the College work collaboratively to refine and improve how we develop campus culture and deliver our curriculum.
- It is an accomplished approach, with many of our faculty publishing books, writing articles in major peer-reviewed journals, and presenting at conferences in their field. Our students mirror this academic success, in on- and off-campus programs of excellence throughout (and past) their Concordia career. Our students attain internships and careers with local, national, and international organizations.
I am astonished at the ongoing creativity that is poured into teaching, research, and learning at Concordia. Our College is one of the major intersections in our academic culture, and we pray that we can be a thoughtful and compelling part of your Concordia experience!
Dr. Ken Schmidt
Dean of the College of Liberal Arts
