Trinity Southwest University (T.S.U.) operates from its campus in Albuquerque, New Mexico and offers on-campus and distance education programs leading to bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees in: Biblical Studies, Theological Studies, Archaeology & Biblical History, Biblical Counseling, Biblical Representational Research, and University Studies. It also fields several Institutes to provide students with curricula of additional emphases. Trinity Southwest University offers both on-campus and distance education degree programs within an historical Judeo-Christian framework. As principally a theological school, Trinity encompasses both the Bible College and Theological Seminary concepts of Christian education into a creative learning environment.

TSU comprises five Colleges covering the following disciplines:

* Biblical Studies
* Theological Studies
* Archaeology & Biblical History
* Biblical Counseling
* Biblical Representational Research

TSU offers a Judeo-Christian education that recognizes Holy Scripture, namely, the Bible, as consisting of both the Old Testament and New Testament, as the basis of all learning, whether biblical, religious, ministerial, professional, denominational or evangelical.

TSU also recognizes legitimate life-experience credits, or portfolio credits, for professional, ministry, work and life experience. Although Trinity does not choose to be accredited by associations recognized by the United States Department of Education, all TSU programs, are internally reviewed for quality in educational concepts in both nontraditional campus-based programs, and nontraditional distance learning programs.

Woven into these various disciplines and subjects are elements of Biblical History, Jewish History and Church History, and they can be taken from a variety of perspectives, including denominational, non-denominational, inter-denominational, trans-denominational, evangelical, Catholic and/or Episcopal, Reformed, and even Secular.

Like other theological schools, Trinity Southwest University focuses on the reality of God and the spiritual dimension of life, but it also centers on Holy Land Studies, i.e., the study of the Bible Lands in which the stories of Scripture occurred. Thus, TSU is heavily involved in offering Travel Study experiences in the Holy Land through its Bible Lands Expedition and Excavation programs.

Trinity sponsors archaeological excavations at several sites in Israel and Jordan. It also schedules regular study tours in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, and other biblically-related locations. And TSU Travel Study can be done for course credit. Trinity Southwest University students have The Land as their classroom, as they study and excavate in Israel and Jordan.

Trinity Southwest University also sponsors the International Symposium on Archaeology and the Bible, held annually at various locations around the world.

The Christ-centered education provided by the quality undergraduate degree, graduate degree, and doctoral degree programs of Trinity Southwest University are available to students of all colors and creeds.
