The Value of a Covenant College Education
When comparing the academic rigor of different colleges, students might find themselves in a never-ending cycle of trying to compare which professor’s doctorate degree is worth more without stopping to ask, “What makes this college’s education valuable for me?”
Expert Scholars Committed to Christ’s Glory
At Covenant, we're proud of our faculty’s commitment to their fields, and we encourage our students to have the same devotion in their studies, but this is not the full picture of what makes a Covenant education valuable. The value comes from the dedication of all Covenant faculty and staff to academic excellence and spiritual formation. The professors’ attention to each student and their academic and spiritual success is what makes an education at Covenant so unique and special.
Never Separating Faith from Studies
We pursue the integration of faith and learning, knowing that we don’t have to compromise one to make room for the other as our culture might lead us to believe. This goes beyond professors praying before class or reading scripture to students. Professors train students to view the world through a biblical lens, approaching every subject with scriptural truth in mind. We never separate our faith from our studies, but instead, we seek to discover God in everything we study.
More Than Regalia and Doctoral Degrees
It is hard not to stand in awe at each year’s opening convocation ceremony while watching the processional of faculty members decked out in their regalia. We respect them for the time and dedication they have put into their field of study, and we as a Covenant community celebrate them.
However, the real reason that learning from these distinguished individuals is so meaningful comes later in the convocation ceremony. Each year, in front of the entire Covenant community, every faculty member reaffirms his/her faith and commitment to the college’s mission of exploring and expressing Christ’s preeminence in all things. Covenant professors and students alike are united in a common journey to glorify God in their studies and careers.
