Trinity's Beyond the Classroom program allows students to earn credit for intensive academic experiences that take place outside the normal classroom environment and conventional academic schedule. Beyond the classroom experiences often take the form of travel courses, but they can also include research projects, field trips, or theater productions.
Beyond the Classroom courses involve close guidance, supervision, or collaboration with Trinity faculty members.
