You may apply to multiple departments for your coursework, but keep in mind that Trinity is best suited for major and minor subjects due to the decentralized nature of the university. Students only studying at Trinity for only the fall semester should keep in mind that stand alone modules in the humanities and social sciences are more widely available than those in STEM fields.
