Trinity offers a wide variety of special academic programs that give students the freedom and flexibility to explore their own special interests. Many of these programs offer unique opportunities to become immersed in urban, civic, or global issues. Others offer multidisciplinary approaches, fresh perspectives, or more intensive study. Students who choose one of these programs invariably report that their learning experience at Trinity is greatly enhanced.
Opportunities range from our first-year Gateway Programs in interdisciplinary arts, interdisciplinary sciences, Cities, and Guided Studies (Western civilization), to our Health Fellows Program, where students interested in health-related professions can gain hands-on experience.
Each of these programs is built on the College’s belief in the value of self-guided study and the faculty’s conviction that there is a fruitful connection between learning and life that is ripe for exploration.
