Concordia College New York – 2+1 Program
This program is designed for Indian college students interested in earning an American Degree by studying 2 years in India and 1 or 1.5 years (2 or 3 semesters) at Concordia. Upon submission of the form below, a request for the student’s course syllabus will follow. The syllabus will be mapped by the Concordia Registrar in order to determine the estimated length of studies at Concordia (1 or 1.5 years).
During their first and second years, students will take five Concordia Online courses. They will run one at the time for 5 weeks each. These courses are compulsory in the Concordia curriculum. Taking them while in India saves time (less semesters spent in the US) and money – $400 USD per course is half the price for on-ground courses.
Taught by American Professors, each course gives the student a glimpse of what it is to study in the US. In a modern online classroom platform (Blackboard), students will interact with professors and classmates through discussion boards and participation in regular web conferences. The courses are assignment-based and there are no final exams. In addition, most assignments are due on weekends so students will have time to complete their regular coursework and online coursework.
