Concordia University St Paul is one of the ten-member Concordia University System, a university system overseen by the Missouri Synod of the Lutheran Church. Originally founded in 1893 to prepare high school students for the ministry, Concordia gradually grew into a one-year, then a two-year college, ultimately becoming a four-year, coeducational university.

Concordia offers an accredited online Master of Arts in Early Childhood Education. Concordia’s 33-credit MA program will instruct students in best practices based on research, emphasizing child development, building family and community relationships, and growing as an education professional. Students should already have an accredited BA or BS in Education.
