Dr. Gabriel Haley's Academic Programs
Concordia’s English major promotes careful reading, encourages critical thinking and models Christian scholarship and thoughtful discussion processes. Ideally, our students will develop a desire to read more and appreciate the role of literature in exploring themselves, the human condition, and Christ’s response to humanity and to our students in particular.
Classical Liberal Arts

At Concordia, this course of study encourages the classical pursuit of what is good, true and beautiful, considered within the light of Christian revelation. Course options for the classical liberal arts minor include Latin, Greek, philosophy, history, literature and early Christian theology. A minor in classical liberal arts educates students in foundational sources, and it serves as a stepping stone for life-long learning.
