The Trinity-in-Trinidad Program offers students an unparalleled learning experience in and out of the classroom in the dynamic, two-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. The Caribbean is a crucially important geographical area,
politically, socially, and culturally. Students explore one of the richest cultures in the Americas through its
politics, human rights, arts, history, economy, religion, and environment. Close collaborations with
local cultural and political leaders, scientists, and scholars allow students to do internships or independent studies for credit in almost any field of interest, gaining valuable academic and career experience.

Trinidad’s location provides students ample opportunities to travel. It is in the southern Caribbean, only five miles off the coast of Venezuela. The islands are among the most prosperous of the entire region. Trinidad and Tobago boasts rich natural resources and a large variety of wildlife and habitats. Equally engaging are Trinidad and Tobago’s crowded and dynamic towns and cities, where buildings and townhouses sit side by side with temples, mosques, and Catholic cathedrals. The capital of Trinidad is Port-of-Spain, a bustling city located at the western end of the island, between rain forested mountains and the Gulf.
