The College enrollment in the traditional program is about 1,100 with a vibrant residential program. We offer majors in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, as well as professional programs in accounting and business administration, nursing, education, computer science, pre-medicine, and pre-law. Trinity also offers masterâ€™s programs in counseling psychology and special education as well as degree completion programs in education and business.Â Trinity Christian College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.
MA or MFA degree is required. Experience in teaching and scholarship is desired. Trinity seeks faculty who are committed Christians able to articulate the relationship between their discipline, the vocational preparation of their students, and a vision for human flourishing that emerges from the Christian faith, as expressed through the Reformed theological tradition. Faculty members are also dedicated to personal involvement with students outside the classroom, including advising, social interaction, and informal academic and cultural settings, as well as with professionals who can complement the Trinity experience.
Trinity particularly welcomes applications from candidates who have professional or personal narratives that reflect diverse perspectives, as well as those who have engagement with issues relevant for preparing students to work and live with intercultural competence and compassion.
