Concord University Reviews
Concord is an excellent university! It is very cheap compared to other schools, which truly matters after graduating, and they also have a lot of "free money" for their students. However, I would be lying if I said that a liberal arts education is worth they money. Sure, if you are getting to go for free or next to nothing, then by all means, go to Concord. If you are having to take out tens of thousands of dollars worth of loans when all is said and done, then I strongly encourage you to major in something worthwhile. Art, psychology, graphic design, business management, recreation and tourism management, English, art, political science, and such are truly useless degrees that will not get you a job after graduating. Let's be honest, you want a job that makes some money after graduating, right? I though so. If so, consider education or social work, or another university all together. The truth of the matter is, if you are going to spend more money than you have ever seen in your life on a degree, you better make sure that degree will get you a job, and those majors that I listed before, are about as useless as the tree they cut down to print your degree out on. Good luck everybody!
I wish I could have found better employment. The school was great and professors as well. They just did not help me find a good paying job or career. I wish I was making more and could pay off some debts. It seems I just have a degree and nothing more.
Concord University is a small school located in southern West Virginia with under 4000 students attending. Many close friends told me that I was making a mistake by choosing Concord, but I am very proud of my choice to attend the great school. Concord is often referred to as " the little Harvard on the hill", because of the rigorous curriculum and is respected a lung graduate schools in the region. The class sizes are small which allows you to have a personal relationship with your professor and they help you grow as a student and as a person. Concord University is a great fit for anyone looking for a great college education that equips you for you professional career or studies.
I love Concord and I love the English department. They have both been my home for four years and although I'm ready to graduate I will definitely miss all the memories I made there. The program is incredible for a small university. Many English majors go to grad school to discover they've been doing the same things for years.
The Educ. Leadership Certification at CU is an 18 hour one year program that was fast paced and informative. The courses consisted of weekly assignments, case studies, projects, test, and internships. All coursework is online yet require textbooks (I rented the previous year for each class for a fraction of the cost), the professors are helpful, structured, and realists. Dr. S. is content and career knowledgeable and flexible to meet the needs of her students (accepts texts, phone calls, and video conferences). Since I already have a MAT plus 45 this 18 hour certification was a Godsend! Also for current educators within WV, contact state RESA offices they often have cohorts with reduced tuition, three coworkers and I benefited from fifty percent reduced tuition. In addition all four of us passed our PRAXIS on our first attempt. I believe that this certification at CU prepared me for the next step within my professional path.

The English program at Concord is very good. The professors are intelligent and caring, and the classes do a good job of preparing you for a career. Concord is a small school, so you are able to receive a more personalized education.
