Check out some of our newest and most popular programs:

Financial Analytics* (B.Sc.): Canada’s financial industry has a growing demand for graduates who possess quantitative
analytical skills beyond crunching numbers — skills that help guide businesses and individuals with their most important investment decisions. Combining mathematics, statistics, economics, business, and computing, this one-of-a-kind
degree program will teach you to analyze investment industry trends and implement real-world data models, setting you up for an exciting career in an increasingly complex financial world.

Law & Arts/Law & Business: Trent/Swansea Dual Degree (LL.B. & B.A. or LL.B. & B.B.A.): In this one-of-a-kind program, you will graduate with two degrees in just six years - a Bachelor of Arts Honours or a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Trent, and a law degree from Swansea University's renowned Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law. You’ll have the chance to take your education global while you live, learn, travel, explore and live abroad in the UK.

Chemical Engineering Dual Degree (B.Sc. Chemistry & B.Eng.): Simultaneously earn both a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Bachelor of Engineering degree in just four years instead of seven through a new partnership between Trent University and Swansea University in the UK. You can even apply to graduate with a Masters in Engineering, adding just 1 more year to the dual degree – an option available to top students in their third or fourth year at Swansea.

Kinesiology* (B.Sc.): Interactive and multidisciplinary, Trent’s four-year B.Sc. degree, now fully offered at our Peterborough campus, goes beyond the standard Kinesiology program. You’re encouraged to get hands-on — in the lab and out in the community — working with everyone from Olympic hopefuls to senior citizens. Get advanced clinical and practical perspective through courses integrated with Trent’s Nursing program, as well as classes in biomechanics,
anatomy, physiology and more. By the time you graduate, you’ll develop the expertise necessary to become a registered kinesiologist

Medical Professional Stream (B.A. or B.Sc.): This four-year stream gives you an automatic edge with professional program examinations, applications, and interviews. Trent’s one-of-a-kind preparatory program is taken jointly with any B.A. or B.Sc. degree and gives you access to a variety of support and guidance services you need to achieve your medical, dentistry, veterinary or pharmacy school dreams starting day one of your undergraduate degree.

A Business School with a Difference: Trent’s popular School of Business offers all the advantages of a traditional Bachelor of Business Administration and more, providing students with the opportunity to specialize their degree in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management, Information Systems and E-Commerce, or Marketing and Consumer Culture.

Forensic Science: Trent is proud to offer a wide variety of professional forensic science programs, each one giving you access to the industry’s best forensic lab facilities and expert faculty.

Conservation Biology Co-Op Option (B.Sc.): With so many of the world’s species currently at risk, there is an essential need for experts who are capable of creating innovative solutions to counteract the growing loss of wildlife and their habitat. In this program – the only one of its kind in Ontario – gain hands-on, valuable experience working with groups like the Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry, Nature Conservancy Canada, Metro Toronto Zoo, Parks Canada and more. 

Indigenous Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.): Schools all over Canada are in need of Indigenous educators, and an educational environment that honours the culture, language and world view of the Indigenous student is critical.
