Study Abroad

Today, cross-cultural understanding is as much a practical necessity as an educational standard. Study abroad is an embodiment of the liberal arts ideals and a sign of the initiative and breadth often looked for by employers.

Religion students have multiple study abroad opportunities to broaden their world perspectives about religion. Students can accompany Trinity faculty on research trips, including archaeological digs, in the Middle East, Africa, and Mesopotamia.

The Study Abroad Office can help you find an opportunity based on your interests and/or studies.
