Even though Evan majored in Exercise & Sport Science, one of things that impressed him the most about Concordia was the emphasis on liberal arts. Courses in humanities, for example, gave him a unique global perspective that not only enhanced his degree, but is applicable to any career path. Concordia’s liberal arts classes focus on critical thinking and challenging students to explore the world around them. This helps bolster skills – such as research and writing – that apply to any subject and any career. The  life lessons Evan learned at Concordia prepared him to follow his passion for health and service, helping to inspire his decision to go on and earn a master’s degree.  To read more about Evan’s experience at Concordia, click here.
