About

Students engage in in-depth study of the literature, sociology, history, anthropology, art, music, and economics of Trinidad and Tobago communities.  The program is based in St. Augustine in Trinidad, but includes an excursion to the Tobago Islands.  Students enroll in the program’s core courses in Caribbean Studies and Festival Arts, as well as up to three electives.  Students can choose from courses at the University of the West Indies or from other Trinity-taught program courses.  The program offers the following study tracts: Caribbean civilization; theater and performance; community arts and media; music; Hinduism; gender and Islamic Studies; and ecology and the environment.  An internship component allows students to delve deeper into the local community.  The program is tailor-made to each student’s interest and students receive a great deal of individual attention, as well as opportunities to engage in the local community.  Motivated students can choose to do one or more independent studies with a local cultural or political leader.  Field trips and activities are included, and students take an active role in the many festivals (including the famous Carnival in the spring and Ramleela in fall) that are an inherent part of life and culture in Trinidad and Tobago.
