It’s a choice, not a checklist
Instead of approaching general education as a checklist of courses to be completed, Trinity’s distinctive educational approach gives you the freedom to select courses that are most interesting and relevant to you. Working closely with your faculty advisor, you can choose from electives to enhance your major, apply toward a minor, create a double major, or simply experience something new. The choices are yours!
Personalized process for selecting a major
It’s unlike any other Christian college: Our personalized process starts the moment you register for classes. Whether you’ve declared a major or are undecided, our faculty walk with you to help you discern God’s calling on your life. Starting as a new student, you will select from one of five areas of focus (called meta-majors), which immediately provides you with a relevant advisor to ask questions, explore academic gifting, and discern career paths. In addition, faculty initiate regular meetings with student small groups outside of class and offer regular office hours.
Strong biblical foundation
World-renowned Trinity Evangelical Divinity School professors teach the college’s Bible and theology courses. But growing your faith is not limited to those classes. All faculty integrate Christian thinking and living into their classroom.
Developing crucial employment skills
Hands-on experience remains a hallmark of a Trinity College education. In fact, many employers specifically seek out Trinity students for internships and employment. With every major requiring at least one internship, and every student participating in two semesters of service learning, these practical experiences help you prepare for a career.
Many majors are available in an accelerated format to provide ambitious students the opportunity to complete their degree in three years.
