A minimum of 36 non-core hours must be earned in three disciplines. This includes a minimum of 12 non-core hours in each chosen discipline. At least 15 of the 48 hours must be 300 level or higher, and at least 6 hours of each concentration must be completed at Covenant. Each discipline has its own requirements. If two concentrations share a course requirement, consult your advisor to select a substitute elective for one of the concentrations. Three disciplines are chosen from the following:

Accounting *
Art
Biblical and Theological Studies
Biblical Languages
Biology
Business *
Chemistry
Coaching 
Community Development
Economics

* Of the four business department concentrations (Accounting, Business, Marketing, and Sport Management), only one of the four may be included as an IDS concentration.

Students should consult the respective departments early in their sophomore year to determine the frequency that required courses are offered. Then, begin organizing a draft of future fall and spring semester schedules to insure prerequisites are completed before core and concentration requirements need to be scheduled.
