Academics

At Covenant, all of our programs are designed to prepare our students to be faithful stewards of their academic gifts. Our principal aim is to explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things, and this purpose permeates all of college life.

 

We prepare students whose abilities to integrate faith and learning allow them to

  • seize opportunities to increase the usefulness of their talents and serve others as Christ's instruments,
  • appreciate the value of all kinds of work, and
  • imaginatively envision new ways to work for the kingdom of Christ.

Each student has a unique set of intellectual, interpersonal, creative, and spiritual abilities, and we seek to help students further develop these gifts.

 

Our professors are not only experts in their disciplines, but also share a Reformed worldview and value the integration of faith and learning. They will be your teachers, your mentors, and your friends throughout your Covenant experience - and beyond.

“I love that Covenant has no room for an Academics + Jesus idea. By this, I mean that I have not had a single professor provide a tidy “Christian integration” during a lesson and then teach as if the real world has no room for Christ. Rather, God and his Word permeate our thinking about ideas, our treatment of material, and the (sometimes diverse) conclusions we draw...No place is perfect, but something I love about Covenant is that that desire to put Christ first is real, and people put real effort in to demonstrate that.”

Be Known

“I love the small student-faculty ratio. It is so comforting to walk around campus and see your professors and for them to be able to call you by name. They are eager to assist, and on this small campus, they are genuinely approachable.”

“My favorite aspect of Covenant College is the classes. My beliefs are constantly being pushed and challenged along with my academic pursuit. The teachers are extremely personable and kind. I struggle to think of one class that I do not feel known by my teacher! The course work is especially challenging, but I honestly do not mind since I love what I am studying.”

Be Curious

“...it is exceedingly valuable that we get to walk through unfamiliar and dangerous ideas with wise and thoughtful professors. They themselves have walked through these ideas but have come out even more in love with Jesus and they lead us to do the same.”
