Concordia University Programs
Concordia’s more than 180 undergraduate programs are divided into four Faculties: Arts and Science,
Engineering and Computer Science, Fine Arts, and the John Molson School of Business. Students are enrolled in one
of these Faculties, but they may take courses from any of the others as part of their
studies. Many programs also offer a “co-operative” component, whereby students get work experience while they study.
In addition, the School of Graduate Studies offers more than 70 programs leading to Master’s and doctoral degrees, as
well as a variety of graduate diplomas and certificates for professionals seeking to upgrade their knowledge and skills.
Students enter the university in September, or in some cases, in January or May. An undergraduate degree normally takes three
or four years to complete, a Master’s takes from a year-and-a-half to three, and a PhD is at least four years long. Certificates
and diplomas usually take no longer than a year-and-a-half to complete.
Concordia University considers the city of Montreal to be an invaluable asset to the university experience. It has a population of
three million, and is one of the oldest cities in North America and one of the world’s largest French-speaking cities. While
French is the predominant language, there is also a large English-speaking population. Many ethno-cultural communities also
help maintain a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere within Montreal.
Concerts, films, plays, art shows and athletic events are plentiful, and there is a 1000-acre mountain in the heart of Montreal,
with parks, jogging and bike paths available.
You can also retreat to the nearby Laurentian Mountains or the Eastern Townships just outside Montreal. Once there, you can do everything from windsurfing to skiing
(alpine, as well as cross-country), or just explore the beautiful countryside. It’s all within an hour or two of Montreal.
