Trinity College is, in some ways, a traditional New England college. They teach the liberal arts and sciences on a beautiful, 100-acre campus with classic collegiate architecture. But in other ways, they are undeniably unconventional.
At Trinity, they believe in independent thinking. They stand for it and they teach it. So you can pursue engineering and minor in art. You can chase a career in politics and also cultivate a love of biology. They will help you pursue whatever path piques your interest. And though your time here will require hard work, the effort will be well worthwhile.
They provide a real-world education. They offer for-credit internships, research opportunities, community-based learning, study away, and groundbreaking centers and programs that allow you to participate in academic pursuits that have lasting impact.
Their signature programs and centers include:
-Twenty-seven interdisciplinary minors
-The groundbreaking Center for Urban and Global Studies
-A Bachelor of Science degree program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
-Their first-of-its-kind Human Rights Program

-Multi-dimensional scientific study in their Interdisciplinary Science Program

Even with all their innovative offerings, their faculty remain the most important aspect of their academic curriculum. Their 9:1 student-faculty ratio gives their 2,200 students important access to teachers. So you won’t only find professors delivering lectures. You’ll see them working with students in laboratories and libraries, on research and on publications. Because they find that when you let students follow their passions, it can lead to incredible things.
