Why Hmong Studies at Concordia?
- Our Hmong studies professors are experts in the field, balancing their research with their practical experience to make what they teach relevant to your future.
- Your professors will get to know you personally, challenge and support your intellectual growth, mentor you in preparing for a career and provide detailed letters of recommendation even beyond your graduation.
- You could do field studies and study tours to gain firsthand experiences in the Asia region and the Hmong community.
- The Concordia Hmong United Student Association (CHUSA) and the Southeast Asian Student Association (SEASA) let you get involved in organizing activities that promote identity, unity, understanding, and cooperation.
- Our Hmong Studies minor is the only program of its kind in the world, Concordia is home to the Center for Hmong Studies and the Twin Cities is home to the largest Hmong-American community—giving you unique immersion opportunities.
- Because the coursework and experiences outside the classroom are designed to teach the knowledge and skills demanded in the marketplace, some of our Hmong graduates move directly on to advanced study in graduate programs, and others find immediate employment at organizations, businesses and agencies of all sorts.
- Since a Concordia education is grounded in the liberal arts and exposes you to a wide range of disciplines across the sciences, humanities and social sciences, you’ll graduate with versatile knowledge and critical thinking skills that are valuable in any career.
- In our Lutheran setting, you’ll acquire greater self-understanding and explore your place in the home, workplace, community and congregation as you prepare for a lifetime of thoughtful living and dedicated service.
