Intensives and Events

  

What Are Intensives? Intensives are week-long courses in June and January that offer full seminary credit. To accomplish this, students do some reading and assignments before the on-campus 5 days of teaching begins, then complete course work in the weeks that follow. 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.

Registration:  Registration for June Term academic courses begins on April 2, 2014 through SIS. Email Stacey Williard registrar@tsm.edu if you are enrolling for the first time. If you would like to register to audit a course, please complete an audit application and return with payment to the Registrar. Audit applications will not be accepted for PT530 or for any DMin courses. To register for non-credit June events click on the course title.

LUNCH TICKETS $30/week: Lunches at Trinity are excellent and are provided Monday through Friday. Prepaid lunch tickets must be pre-purchased online. Salads are always available, but we cannot further accommodate dietary restrictions.
