Partnered with a rich tradition of academic excellence, Trinity College’s setting as a small liberal arts college in the capital city of Hartford, Connecticut creates unique opportunities to move beyond the classroom for experiential learning through city-based curriculum, internships, and community outreach.

A small student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) creates an environment where students have unmatched access to devoted professors. Without a rigid core curriculum, students explore their own interests for a self-guided education.
