M.A. Programs

Trinity College currently offers three master's degree programs in American Studies, English, and Public Policy.  For information on the curriculum and faculty of each program, visit these pages:

Across graduate programs, we offer a range of flexible options, designed to accommodate busy schedules and ensure timely degree completion.

  • Full-time or part-time status.  Students can enroll as either part-time or full-time students.  We map out the possible trajectories so you can sequence your courses and complete your degree.  Your adviser will work with you to plan a pathway that's tailored to your needs.
  • Point of entry.  Students can begin each graduate program in the fall, spring, or summer terms; and we've identified entry courses for each term.
  • Course schedules.  Our graduate courses are typically during evening hours to accommodate busy professional schedules.
  • Non-degree status.  Students who aren't sure about committing to a degree program can take up to two courses before applying for admission.  Students must earn no less than a B- in courses taken as a non-degree student if those courses are subsequently to count toward the degree.
  • Transferring courses.  Up to two graduate courses taken at another institution can be transferred and counted toward the master's degree, subject to an approval process.​
