Internships and Field Experience
Field-based ministry experience is vital to the development of Trinity students, and is a requirement of all academic programs. Students must complete a certain number of hours of service, and ministry opportunities for students must be mentored. As a mentor, you will stand in a long tradition of men and women who count it a privilege to build into the next generation of Christian leaders. Read more about the Field Experience requirements.
- For a Field Education experience, a student is required to complete 40-45 hours of service (which represents 3-5 hours per week for one semester).
- For an Internship, a student is required to complete 390 hours of service (which represents at least 30 hours per week for one semester, or 15 hours per week for two consecutive semesters).
