We’re committed to providing an interactive classroom experience so you can begin your career with confidence knowing that you have been well-prepared academically, spiritually, intellectually, and professionally. Our professors offer knowledge and experience in the fields in which they are teaching. Each class brings a new opportunity for students to learn, listen, ask questions, interact, or discuss. All professors have an open-door policy, giving students opportunities for additional mentoring and assistance.
Every student graduating with a Bachelor of Arts will receive a double major in Bible and Theology along with a major of choice. This means you will be immersed in the teachings of Scripture and will also learn how the Bible applies to your program of study.

The C.S. Lewis Society was organized by Princeton University students in 1975, as a guest-speaker forum for the campus community to hear Christian scholars articulate a biblical perspective on topics of wide public concern. After years of fruitful ministry, the Society was re-launched on the campus of Trinity College of Florida in 1988 as a fellowship of those committed to explaining and defending the Christian faith internationally. Our outreach has focused especially on university campuses and nations that are dominated by skeptical attitudes toward the core truths of Christianity.

Dr. Tom Woodward is the President of the C.S. Lewis Society and has been a professor at Trinity College of Florida since 1988, teaching courses in science, philosophy, theology, anthropology and communications. He previously chaired the Department of World Missions and the Department of Bible and Theology. Tom is a graduate of Princeton University, obtained his Th.M. in Systematic Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and his Ph.D. from the University of South Florida.

Darwin Strikes Back: Defending the Science of Intelligent Design (2006) continued to trace the history of the debate over Darwinism and design theory, and more recently (2012) Dr. Woodward teamed up with Dr. James Gills to produce The Mysterious Epigenome: What Lies Beyond DNA.
