Special Programs and Opportunities
In addition to the major, joint-major and minor degree programs described in the Undergraduate programs section of the calendar, students can take advantage of a range of special programs and opportunities. These include possibilities for international study experience or involvement in research projects in the local community. Emphases, consisting of groups of courses with a particular focus, are available as a complement to regular programs. Specializations provide additional focus within individual programs. The Individualized Studies program is available to students whose academic interests cannot be met by majors in any of the existing programs.
Trent also provides opportunities to combine study at the community college and university levels. We have developed a number of degree completion programs through articulation agreements with several community colleges, and we also offer some programs in partnership with Fleming College in Peterborough and Lindsay.
Most of Trent’s academic programs are offered at its Peterborough campus during the regular Fall/Winter session. However, as noted below, Trent also provides programs in the summer through Julian Blackburn College and offers degree programs at Trent in Oshawa in both the Fall/Winter and Summer sessions.
