May Term

Each year in May, Covenant faculty and students travel off­-campus for a variety of courses. A few options from past years and plans for 2019 include:

  • Study Art and the Church in Rome
  • Study and create art in Florence
  • Explore Israel's geography and history, enriching your study of Scripture
  • Study Cultural Heritage of the West I in Rome
  • Study and experience global trends in London
  • Consider the theology and practices of Christian spirituality in Rome
  • Gain teaching experience in a practicum in Budapest, Prague, or Hoboken, NJ


May term provides a unique opportunity for students and professors to live and learn together in an intense three-week course. Students gain three to four credits while spending time in a different context, combining classroom and experiential learning. Many students use a May term course, when appropriate, as the basis for fulfilling their COR337 requirement. Students who plan to travel off­ campus for May term are required to attend a pre­-departure workshop in April.
