Education

The Education Department at Covenant College annually graduates dozens of students with undergraduate and graduate degrees that enable them to effectively teach and lead in public, private, and Christian schools around the world.

 

Whether a prospective student desires to teach in an elementary school (P-5 Early Childhood), middle school (Middle Grades, 4-8), or in high school in one of a dozen academic areas through our one-year Master of Arts in Teaching program, the Education Department has a place just for you.
