Course Schedule

Unless otherwise noted, all courses are held in the Larkin Building (LA) of Trinity College.

The days and times given below reflect when some live videoconference class activities may be scheduled. Every course will vary in terms of asynchronous (materials and activities which can be accessed and completed at any time) or synchronous (live scheduled activities) delivery.
