Summer Institutes

Integrating ​Learning in and out of the Classroom​​

Trinity Summer Institutes are small courses, ranging in size from 10 to 20 students, which are led by a dedicated faculty director.  As part of the coursework, some of the institutes will take students to Hartford museums and concerts; others will study in Connecticut state parks or the United Nations in New York.  Students in an institute might interact with guest experts, work on projects, or collaborate actively in labs — across STEM fields, the arts, humanities, and social sciences. All Institute students will have access to a series of optional workshops  for academic and professional success.

The tuition for summer institutes is $2975 per  credit,  including all fees for required trips and activities.

Be sure to check the full roster of undergraduate courses offered this summer, including all institute descriptions​ and regular courses.
