Welcome to the College of Theology, Arts, & Sciences!
How do you use your life to impact the world around you? It is more than simply picking a career. The challenge is finding a meaningful place in society to effectively use your gifts and talents and know you are making a real difference in the lives of the people around you. The faculty and staff of the College of Theology, Arts, & Sciences (CTAS) are committed to helping students struggle with that fundamental question and guide them in discovering ways to serve the Lord through a life of leadership and service.
Liberal arts is a broad category that touches all aspects of life. A liberal arts education is designed to provide students with exposure to a wide range of subjects that help develop important critical thinking skills and prepare them to effectively live in a rapidly changing world. Students are exposed to diverse experiences, both on and off campus, that nurture intelligence, faith, creativity and values and help shape one’s character and perspective on life. The Concordia CTAS experience offers majors in: biology, chemistry, English, environmental management, history, humanities, pastoral studies, psychology, social science and theological studies. Each major provides a variety of exciting career options but more importantly an excellent, well-rounded education that enables students to influence their world in positive ways in many different walks of life.
Faculty members are passionate about their respective fields of study and value building strong relationships with their students through rigorous academic engagement. CTAS cultivates a community of life-long learners and builds relationships that will last for a lifetime. We invite you to join our award-winning students in carrying out cutting-edge research, participating in real work experience and building relationships with people who really care about you and your academic success!
