Coursera for Covenant College

Increase your ability to stand out to employers by adding an in-demand skill to your resume.

Choose a certificate that focuses on data and analytics, computer science, finance, marketing, or project management. Each certificate consists of multiple online courses that include in-browser tutorials and step-by-step expert video guidance which can be completed on average in 5-7 months (4-8 hrs/wk).
