Colleges and Schools

The world is a pretty complex place.

To succeed, it takes the kind of depth of knowledge in a particular field that will set you apart. At the same time, it takes an understanding of how various disciplines and fields intersect and intertwine every day.

 At Trine, you’ll find nationally respected programs and nationally acclaimed faculty who will help you build your depth of knowledge. And you’ll do so in a setting where you’ll live, learn, relax, reflect, share, inspire, and be inspired by fellow students representing a rich diversity of academic interests and professional goals.

College of Engineering and Business

Created in 2015, the College of Engineering and Business is home to the Allen School of Engineering and Technology and the Ketner School of Business, and in Fall 2019, will add the new School of Computing. This structure develops a partnership that enhances the strong reputation of the engineering programs with the strengths of the business school. This, along with Innovation One — which connects business, industry and the community with campus resources — will provide experiential learning as students work in laboratories, engage with manufacturers, businesses and corporations to enhance what they have learned in the classroom.

College of Graduate and Professional Studies

In 2016, the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Graduate School were combined to provide outstanding programs to working adults/nontraditional students offering quality, flexibility, and convenience all at once at each of the eight education centers located in Indiana and Michigan. The College offers a wide range of associate, bachelor, and master’s programs while students enjoy individualized guidance, advanced technological resources, and flexible scheduling options.

Franks School of Education

Trine has been educating the area’s best teachers since 1884. The  Franks School of Education blends solid theoretical knowledge with crucial clinical experiences that begin as early as the first year. The School is guided by highly respected former teachers, administrators, and department chairs, and last year’s class of education graduates achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the Core Academic Skills Assessment tests (CASA), the Content Area Assessment tests (CORE), and the Developmental Assessment test (Pedagogy).

Jannen School of Arts & Sciences

From criminal justice and forensic science, to music, biology, and mathematics, the Jannen School of Arts & Sciences delivers extensive theoretical knowledge and hands-on training in state-of-the-art classrooms and labs. And one-third of the School’s faculty have been nominated by their students to Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers—more than twice the national average.

Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences

The Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences is the home of our first doctoral program, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and home to our Master of Physicians Assistant Studies programs. In the undergraduate degrees, students can choose from majors including exercise science, biology, biochemistry and a variety of pre-professional tracks.
