Founded in 1872, Concord University is a public university dedicated to improving the lives of students and the community. The University is dedicated to innovative teaching and learning, intellectual and creative activities, and community service and civic engagement.


All Students must complete a minimum of 120semester hours to receive a baccalaureate degree, regardless of their field of specialization, and among these must be the minimum 39-40 semester hours prescribed in the General Education Program.

General Education is an essential element in an educational process designed around student learning expectations and the attainment of the skills, knowledge, and attitudes. The General Education Program is a coherent series of courses that emphasize the common learning of a shared body of knowledge, the development of intellectual skills, and an appreciation of the diverse social and cultural values and institutions that make up the modern world. Through studies in these basic liberal arts and sciences, students gain a foundation for specialized studies, are equipped with the tools and skills necessary to pursue further learning, and acquire an understanding of the modes of inquiry and the ways of knowing.
