Trinity Approved Programs

Particularly in light COVID-19, both Trinity and our off-campus program providers are monitoring the ability of students to safely participate, and plan to adjust according to the changing conditions.  Please reference the program websites for their current status, and contact Maria Hodapp, Director of Off-Campus Programs (maria.hodapp@trnty.edu), for support in planning your future off-campus semester.

Where will you go?

Trinity off-campus programs allow students to spend one semester in Chicago, D.C., Los Angeles, Nashville or abroad. These programs are supported with institutional financial aid and enroll students from other Christian colleges.

Experience a new culture. Travel internationally. Make new friends. Be challenged.  Where in the world will you go?

Chicago Semester

Chicago Semester takes advantage of everything the city has to offer—an urban environment and city life, courses that allow you to engage with the city, and an internship in your field of interest.

Semester in Spain

You’ll truly experience life in Spain. You’ll live with a family in Seville, study the Spanish language, literature, and culture, and explore and taste all that Spain has to offer!

Semester in Ecuador

In Quito, Ecuador, you’ll live with an Ecuadorian family, explore the Galapagos and Amazon, and study Spanish, the culture of Ecuador, and get to know life in a developing nation.

Middle East Studies Program

Located in Amman, Jordan, MESP immerses students in the daily life, language, food, culture, religion, and politics of one of the oldest cities in the world. With extensive travel throughout the Middle East, you will learn firsthand from locals how to work, play, and serve in the region as you become their neighbor — and soon, their family — while learning adventurously at MESP.

Paris Semester

The Paris program, offered through Asbury University (Kentucky), includes an internship (such as visual art, music, media, ministry, or French language). Courses incorporate site visits to major art collections such as the Louvre and Pompidou Center. Prior French language is not required.  Offered in the fall in odd years.

Romania Semester

Students participate in New Horizons Foundation’s unique experiential education mission by interacting with Romanian youth while learning about post-communist Eastern Europe.

Nashville Contemporary Music Center

CMC prepares students for careers in the entertainment industry, challenging them to live out their faith as Christ-followers. Thirty students live, work, and create music together in a facility with 24/7 access to world-class gear. Faculty are music industry pros who keep the program relevant and practical.  The “Final Exam” is a week-long Road Tour at the end of the semester.

Oxford Semester (Scholars’ Semester in Oxford)

As a student in the Scholars’ Semester in Oxford (SSO), you are an official member of Wycliffe Hall and a Registered Visiting Student of the University of Oxford (a privilege for very few visiting students). This is your access point to a 900-year history, world-recognized academic excellence and 119 libraries, with their 11 million books and outstanding electronic resources.

Uganda Studies Program

Chat with classmates on campus at Uganda Christian University (UCU) as you munch on a “rolex” (a local snack of eggs and Chapati). Just 15 miles from the capital city of Kampala, Mukono offers USP students the opportunity to participate in Ugandan culture.

Netherlands Studies Program in Conteporary Europe (SPICE)

Studies Program in Contemporary Europe (SPICE) is a cooperative program with VIAA, a Reformed Christian university in Zwolle, Netherlands. During the spring semester, you’ll live with host families while engaging in the language, culture, and art of Europe.

Washington DC American Studies Program

A Washington, DC semester experience is an investment.  Short-term trips to the nation’s capital give you a glimpse into the important work happening here, the remarkable people dedicated to making a difference, and the inspiring history that reminds us that our work is part of a story much bigger than our own.

Los Angeles Film Studies Center

Students live in Hollywood, take classes with industry professional (producers, directors, writers), intern in the film and television industry, and develop a faith-based community with like-minded peers, mentors, and alumni.
