- Trinity One has five streams: Public Policy; Ethics, Society, & Law; International Relations; the Anne Steacy Biomedical Health Stream; and the Anne Steacy Health Science and Society Stream. Students enroll in one of these five streams.
- Each stream consists of two credits.
- For Public Policy; Ethics, Society, & Law; International Relations; and the Anne Steacy Health Science and Society stream, the two seminar credits are both taken concurrently in the first year.
- For the Anne Steacy Biomedical Health Stream, one seminar credit is taken in the first year, and the second seminar credit is taken in the second year. This gives students in life science the option to take math, chemistry, biology and physics in first year while taking part in Trinity One.
- The seminar courses are have limited enrollment to ensure small class sizes. They foster small-group discussion and emphasize the development of critical-thinking, oral-presentation, writing, and research skills.
