Trinity College currently offers three Master's degree programs in American Studies, English, and Public Policy.

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.​
