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.

"Core classes seemed like a lot to take on when I began my freshman year, but I have really enjoyed them. Core classes push me to think about various fields of study that I wouldn’t normally encounter in my major. Bible classes have been formative in developing my own beliefs, and CHOW classes have given me a Christian perspective on the culture we live in. As a math major, it is easy to think solely about numbers and equations, but classes like CHOW have taught me that famous mathematicians connect math with philosophy. As a Christian I see math as the work of my Creator, but historical mathematicians may have viewed math in a completely different light. It has been especially important for me to think through these other perspectives and form my own so that when asked, 'Why do you study math if you are a Christian?' I will have an answer. I never expected to experience these questions, but I have. I am thankful that I was prepared with an answer that glorifies God and his order in this world."

"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."
