Courses for 2013-2014
During the 2013-2014 academic year, Trinity House will offer four courses, each course named for a season of the church year:
Trinity House Intensive Courses
Each year, Trinity House hosts several week-long intensive courses in Bible, theology, liturgics, or some aspect of culture. Courses run Monday through Friday. Mornings will be devoted to lectures, afternoons to seminar sessions with Certificate students (see below), and will close with a late afternoon lecture or discussion. Each day’s course work will be punctuated by worship – Matins, Sext (noon), and Vespers.
Classes will be held at

Certificate and Non-Certification courses
Students at Trinity House can sign up for two levels of class work.
Non-certificate students would be free to attend lectures, participate in worship, and engage in informal discussions. Each course is $300 for non-certificate students.
In addition to attending lectures and participating in worship, certificate students will be required to a) complete readings assigned by the instructor(s), b) participate in small-group seminars during the intensive course week, and c) submit a paper after the course. When a student has completed six intensive courses, he or she will receive a Certificate of Completion from Trinity House. Each course costs $500 for certificate students. Adults or students who have completed at least two years of college qualify to take certificate courses. Students who are not pastors must submit a letter of recommendation from a pastor or session of the local church of which they are members.
