School Description

Concordia University Irvine traces its early beginnings to a group of Southern California Lutherans whose vision of building a Lutheran college for the people of the Pacific Southwest led them to Irvine, California. Construction of the new school began, following the approval of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) and by 1976 the institution opened its doors as the Christ College Irvine. The college expanded its grounds and enrollment grew throughout the years until finally becoming Concordia University Irvine in 1993.

Today, its campus sits on a 70-acre plateau and boasts of over 20 buildings that house its 5 schools through which it offers bachelor's degree programs in over 100 concentrations and master's degree programs in areas of business, coaching, healthcare, theology, education, nursing, counselling, and organizational leadership. Concordia University Irvine enrolls over 4,000 students, almost half of which belong to various minority groups.

            A place to grow

            What I liked about Concordia when I went there was the overtly Christian atmosphere. Chapel held four days a week. All the teachers had an interest, while teaching straight academics, in showing how God fits in with every discipline. You didn't have to go far to find God being glorified. It also helped me to know that the university was accredited and that my credits would be transferred to the graduate institution of my choice. My choice was to go to Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO, another excellent institution. I would have never have made it there without the instruction that I had received at Concordia University, Irvine.

            Working and Studying at CUI got me where I am today:

            My undergrad, and graduate education at CUI, combined with the 10 years of experience I had as an employee all directly contributed to getting me where I am today. The MBA program taught me an enormous amount about being business savvy, and about how to operate in the complexities of a global marketplace and large corporations. My experience in the IT Services department dramatically expanded my skills and gave me a solid and wide breadth of knowledge across an array of technology that I needed to make a move to Amazon. Even more surprisingly, my manager, one of the people that was involved in my interview and hiring process at Amazon, was very familiar with the Concordia University system. Never underestimate the power of having Concordia on your resume, even small schools with integrity and academic standards are more recognized than you might imagine.

            I am proud to recommend Concordia University, Irvine

            I find it difficult to believe that anyone who experiences CUI could not fall in love. I was extremely blessed to share my time at CUI with Ruth DeNault along with our wonderful undergraduate cohort, together again with Ruth, Krishy, and Brittany The beauty of the campus, the dedicated and caring faculty, in an environment that you are safe to express your loving walk in grace with fellow Christians and others of peaceful faiths. CUI is fresh, exciting, comforting, and fulfilling all at once. YES I LOVE CUI !
