Intensives & Events
Make Plans for Summer Intensive Study
What Are Intensives? Intensives are week-long courses in June and January which compress an entire semester's seminary study (of a single class). To accomplish this, students do pre-reading and other work before the on-campus all-day teaching week begins, and then some follow-on work after the week is over. The courses can also be audited. Whether audited or taken for credit, Intensives offer an excellent way to learn a lot in a very brief period of time as well as to see the campus and get a sense for seminary study at Trinity. We encourage you to try Trinity Intensives for continuing education and personal enrichment.
