Academic Certificate Programs

Covenant’s certificates are interdisciplinary programs organized by a program coordinator and a committee of participating faculty. These certificates are granted by Covenant College, not an external certifying agency. While they do not guarantee the specific type of certification that an employer might require, they provide an academic path that will better prepare students to work or pursue further study in the designated area. Courses that count toward a certificate program can also be used to satisfy other curricular requirements. To count toward a certificate program, a course must be completed with a grade of C- or better.

"I can’t even begin to count the number of times that subjects I was learning about in a core class poured over into my specialized classes and gave me an extra edge on certain assignments or essays. I’m often assigned something and say to myself “Hey! We talked about that in Cultural Heritage of the West!” Immediately, I know more about that particular subject and also have something to compare and contrast it to, further deepening my understanding of the subject. The fact that I can immediately utilize the knowledge I am gaining from my core classes and use them in my other classes is all the assurance I need to know that the core classes will also influence my post-grad life."

"My core classes show me how to find God’s glory in everything I do. I was especially able to see that through my biology lab. These core classes encourage me to think differently about my business classes and seek the Lord in whatever field I go into."
