Where can this degree take me?
Based in the liberal arts tradition, the major is designed to help students develop skills applicable throughout their lives by starting and working in many different types of organizations, including large and small businesses, nonprofits, and ministries. Trinity’s business curriculum has a bias toward practical application. This allows working students to immediately use course concepts on the job.
How long will it take to earn my degree?
In addition to 49 credits required for a major, students at Trinity College also complete 47-62 credit hours of general education requirements. These courses relate to communication skills, arts and humanities, and qualitative and analytical reasoning. Some students can substitute completed coursework that resulted in an A.A., A.S. or A.F.A. degree for those requirements, but all Trinity students must complete a series of courses focused on the foundations of Christian thinking and living. In all, a bachelor’s degree from Trinity requires at least 124 credit hours for those students beginning with zero credits. For more information on degree requirements, go to pages 66-68 of the Trinity College Catalog.
Students who have already completed some coursework at the college or university level have the option of completing their degree online at Trinity. For these students, a degree can be completed in as little as 2-3 years.
