Trinitys strong programs in Art History and Studio Arts are led by a faculty of nationally recognized scholars and working artists.
Art history majors receive a rich introduction to the global heritage of art and develop a framework for comparative analysis and critique. Majors and minors in studio arts build a deep portfolio of both classic and new media and exhibit in student-curated campus galleries. All fine arts majors travel to museums in Boston and New York, are encouraged to study abroad through Trinity International Programs in Rome, Paris, Beijing and other cities, and participate in a wide variety of academic internships in Hartford and other arts and cultural institutions around the world.
Music is the emotional language of culture. Music majors and minors at Trinity immerse themselves in the theory and practice of popular, classical, and world music with cross-disciplinary studies in American studies, international studies and anthropology. Majors can choose to specialize in American popular music, ethnomusicology, or musical theater.
The study of theater and dance at Trinity is both a private and public experience. In studio classrooms, students work through the classical elements of performance—acting, improvisation, voice, and movement—and then engage with the community through staged productions, concerts, and service opportunities. Students help teach movement classes to Hartford youth and have the option of spending an unforgettable semester in New York City through the Trinity/La MaMa Performing Arts Program.
