Welcome to the website of the Covenant College Physics Department!

Physics at Covenant College? Science with a Reformed edge! If you are serious about your Christianity, and you think physics may be your calling, you should investigate Covenant College. We cannot describe the difference fully here, but suffice it to say that along with the thorough grounding in a Reformed worldview that the overall program of the college provides, we in the physics department make it a point to introduce you to all that the Reformed tradition has to offer concerning our understanding of science. Best of all? Science is a legitimate calling for Christians to pursue wholeheartedly! We do not all have to be pastors and missionaries to fulfill God's purposes. Some of us are called to study God's creation using our God-given talents in mathematics and physics, and we get to have fun while doing so! If you find yourself drawn to mathematics or physics, and are committed to a Reformed worldview, come to Covenant College, and follow your calling!
