A Message from the Dean

We are delighted that you have chosen to grow professionally through a program of Trinity Graduate School.  Trinity Graduate School offers professional programs in education, leadership, and mental health counseling.  

One of the things that makes a Trinity Graduate School education distinctive is that, at Trinity, you will learn not only the content of your discipline but also will consider your discipline through the lens of a biblical worldview.  Trinity Graduate School is part of Trinity International University, a Christian institution affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America.  Trinity is Christ-centered and committed to biblical faith. We believe in unity in the essentials but welcome Christ-followers from a variety of different backgrounds in this learning community.

Your faculty will include the outstanding teachers and scholars of our full-time faculty, as well as active practitioners in the field who teach part time at Trinity. I encourage you to take time to read their biographies in this catalog to learn more about them before you meet them in class. All faculty are committed Christians who embrace Trinity’s distinctives and are committed to the learning of their students.

The Graduate School’s programs are delivered in ways that are convenient for busy professionals, including online, modular, face to face, summer institute, and cohort groupings. (Note, though, that not all programs are offered in all delivery modes.) 

Regardless of the program you select, you can be confident that Trinity Graduate School’s programs will give you a transformative understanding of your discipline so that you can engage culture from a biblical worldview.

Welcome to the Trinity community. We look forward to walking alongside you in your graduate school journey.
