Understanding and changing the world with words

Literature and Languages programs at Trinity teach students to engage the world through imaginative and critical language. Students learn how reading and writing shape culture and perspective. Taught from a Christian perspective, classes work to create students who can build lives making a difference in the world using the incredible power of words.

The Spanish program, which focuses on the language, literature, and culture of the Hispanic world, is fully immersive. All students majoring in Spanish take part in the Semester in Spain (SIS) program in Seville.
