Beginning in the summer of 2021, Covenant will offer a hybrid delivery model for our M.Ed. and MAT programs, allowing you more flexibility as you complete your degree. Through the hybrid model, you will earn your degree with a combination of on-campus courses and online classes.
We will still offer our academically robust, biblically anchored, and cohort-designed programs, but this model will allow students to complete the M.Ed. in a shorter time frame. Additionally, MAT students can complete the program while working in another location.
The Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC), the organization that grants state teaching licenses for individuals who complete a state-approved program like ours, rates Covenant’s teacher education programs with a top ranking of 4, one of only a handful of programs statewide with that highest evaluation.
The Master of Education program offers specializations in Educational Leadership or Integrated Curriculum and Instruction to educators around the world. In the summer, all students join us on our beautiful Lookout Mountain campus for the first three in-person courses. Then, students take one online course during the fall semester and two online courses in the spring semester. The following summer, students return to campus for three more courses, leaving only the capstone course to complete. This hybrid model allows students to complete the program in less than two years, but if students choose not to move at this faster pace, they can take courses as it fits their schedule.
“[Covenant is] the single most productive source of school leaders.”
– Dr. Bruce Lockerbie; school administrator, author, and CEO of PAIDEIA (educational consulting firm)
The Master of Arts in Teaching program is an eleven-month, pedagogy-only, initial teaching certification program in multiple content areas. Students in the Chattanooga area can attend all of their classes on campus, but the hybrid option allows students with teaching jobs in other locations to enroll, taking their fall and spring semester evening classes online synchronistically with students on campus.
“The GSE at Covenant encourages deep thinking about what it means to teach, learn, and lead biblically, and no other experience in my life has been so formative in molding my heart and mind to do just that.”
– M.Ed. graduate Dr. Jay Ferguson ’08, Headmaster of Grace Community School, Texas
