Student Internships

To come alongside the rigorous academic program and enhance classroom education with hands-on experience, Covenant encourages students to pursue internships and other career-related work.


We believe that these meaningful experiences will truly help students identify where their skills and desires meet real needs in society and further define their career paths.


The following profiles of student interns offer a small taste of the diligence Covenant students are demonstrating in an effort to identify and boldly pursue their vocational callings.
