The Margaret MacMillan Trinity One Program
BIG Ideas .... Small Classes
The Margaret MacMillan Trinity One program at Trinity College in the University of Toronto provides first-year students with the opportunity to explore major issues and ideas pertaining to human life and world affairs, while in a small-group environment conducive to deep discussion and interaction.
- Trinity One has three streams: International Relations, Public Policy, and Ethics. Students enrol in one of these three streams.
- Each stream consists of two seminar courses, taken concurrently, and requires that students take a third, co-requisite course. (These three courses would be among the five courses typically taken per-year by a Faculty of Arts & Science student.)
- The seminar courses are limited to 25 students each. They foster small-group discussion and emphasize the development of critical-thinking, oral-presentation, writing, and research skills.
The Advantages of Trinity One:
- Trinity One includes co-curricular events that draw upon the rich resources of the University of Toronto's Munk School of Global Affairs and Centre for Ethics, both located at Trinity, as well as the University's School of Public Policy. These events enable students in all Trinity One streams to hear guest speakers and to engage in informal conversation with one another and with their professors.
- Trinity One is connected to a diverse and engaging undergraduate college community.
- Trinity One's interdisciplinary focus provides a firm grounding in, and connections to, a number of programs like International Relations, Ethics Society and Law, History, Political Science and Philosophy.
- Trinity One has a strong track record of producing alumni that go on to excel in both their academic and co-curricular pursuits.
- Trinity One provides an academically rigorous preparation for the rest of your undergraduate career and is excellent early foundation for future graduate work.
