2020/21 Course Listing
This preliminary Course Listing is intended to help you start planning today by reviewing the 2020/21 course lists below. The lists include information about the multi-access approach (including whether courses are remote, online, or in-person) to help you determine the location and format of the courses you wish to take.
Your Choice is Key
The main thing about courses at Trent in the upcoming academic year is that almost all courses will be offered in a way that allows you to access content remotely or online. Even where in-person components exist, many courses will provide students with options to access content and learning material if they cannot be present.
A Note about Winter Term
Many winter courses currently indicate in-person as “mandatory” because of our hope that by the winter term, more students will be able to return to study primarily on campus and we want you to be able to plan accordingly. In the event that guidance regarding the pandemic does not permit a full return to campus, and students need to study remotely for their health and safety, the University will ensure that there is choice. As much as possible – and with the exception of courses that must be done on campus – programs will allow for a multi-access approach with in-person and online options.
