As part of the University of Toronto’s First-Year Foundations Ones programs, the Margaret MacMillan Trinity One program 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.

Program Structure:

  • First-year students are admitted to one of the six streams based on a supplementary application.
  • Each stream consists of two full-year courses (2.0 FCE) and are both taken in the first year.
  • The seminar courses 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.
