The CCE is the non-credit credit department of Concordia University situated on the SGW campus. The CCE delivers high-quality adult-education instruction by innovators in the different disciplines. Through the CCE, we support Concordia University in its mission to serve the community and provide a hub for lifelong learning. For more than four decades, CCE has contributed to the educational and personal success of thousands of students from across the globe. CCE embraces the global student mobility phenomenon as it strongly believes that the presence of students coming from various countries with different backgrounds, cultures and linguistic groups only contributes to the excellence, opportunities and quality of life to its students, faculty and staff. CCE offers excellent teaching and learning environment, opportunity to grow, reflect and share, and quality of life. While studying at CCE, you will experience the four Canadian seasons: a visit to National capital Ottawa to experience the Spring Tulip Festival; travel back in time in the Summer months to Upper Canada Village in historic Kingston, Ontario; take in the majestic Fall colors in world famous Mont Tremblant; go snow tubing in the Laurentian mountains and attend a Concordia hockey game.
