What is online learning like at CUC?

Concordia University Chicago online programs allow for flexibility whether you are looking to get ahead or finding the best learning format for your schedule. By leveraging the benefits of the collaborative learning, our online trained faculty provide exceptional instruction and an engaging and meaningful learning experience.

Our online students are expected to turn in regular assignments and engage in critical discussions with peers. Successful students will be those that have strong time management skills, good writing skills, and are self-directed learners.

Our online students and faculty use a variety of tools to ensure the online experience is a thorough and comprehensive learning experience. One example is discussion boards. You will use discussion boards to connect with your classmates and instructors throughout the week. Such collaborative tools allow students and faculty to engage in perspective sharing, engage in critical discussion about the subject matter, and share resources. 

Concordia University Chicago instructors are also trained in using synchronized technologies that allow for learning in real time. All of these work together to ensure that our faculty provides you the best learning experience anytime and everywhere.
