Frequently Asked Questions
Trinity College was birthed from within Sovereign Grace Churches and is partnering with the denomination to establish the College. Participation in the college, however, is not limited to members of Sovereign Grace Churches and potential students from other denominational backgrounds are warmly invited to apply. While some of our denominational distinctives will naturally be expressed through our curriculum, most of the content of our classes will be heartily affirmed by evangelicals who hold to historic, confessional expressions of the Christian faith. To learn more about the doctrinal commitments to which Trinity College adheres, see the Sovereign Grace Churches Statement of Faith.
A liberal arts degree might be the best way for you to prepare for your future. It is a widespread and persistent misconception that a degree in liberal arts or humanities is detrimental to a career and dooms a student to a career in fast food. In fact, students with liberal arts degrees are more in demand—and more employable in a wider variety of fields—than ever before.
The reason so many liberal arts majors find a high degree of professional success is simple: their training in reading, writing, philosophy, logic, history, and literature prepares them to be the leaders, thinkers, and communicators that thriving organizations need.
Furthermore, few college graduates continue in industries directly related to their undergraduate studies. The average American worker today will change careers and even industries numerous times between graduation and retirement. A liberal arts degree prepares students in a variety of fields and careers.
Finally, a liberal arts education is not merely pragmatic. The idea that a specific kind of degree will guarantee a certain return on investment over the course of a student’s career is a falsehood propagated by university marketing departments. A liberal arts degree gives students a sense of place in history and in the world, fostering intellectual humility, perpetual curiosity, diligence, and integrity. In short, a liberal arts degree prepares students for the future by shaping character and forging virtue. By offering a Christian liberal arts degree, Trinity College helps students find their place in the biblical storyline through the gospel of Jesus Christ and equips students with the Christian character to honor Christ and bear fruit in the church, in the home, and in the marketplace, for a lifetime.
A virtual classroom has the singular advantage of flexibility. Trinity College uses a hybrid virtual classroom, leveraging the best of in-person learning along with current learning technologies to best serve students in a variety of settings. Virtual classrooms allow for lively discussion and easily incorporate secondary media as teaching aids.
