Through the history program at Trinity, students take an in-depth look at how culture has been transformed by history. Students learn to read, write, think, and speak with an understanding of what has happened in the past, and our call to transform culture, working toward a future of justice and shalom.
At Trinity, studies of history are shaped by the study of the outlines of what has happened in the past and by bringing you in contact with the sources which inform us about the past.

Dr. John Fry believes that history enables us to listen to the voices of the past. “This is important for a number of reasons: Those voices enable us to trace why the present is the way that it is; listening to those voices helps us to engage people who don’t think the way we do; and people in the past have much to teach us about how to view the world and how to live a meaningful life.”
