Society is based on how people interact with one another, how they work, live, and play together. By our very nature, humans are social creatures. Trinity’s human relations program allows students to understand human behavior and the social world by combining the disciplines of psychology and sociology. Students learn how to research aspects of society, including the issues of inequality based on factors like gender and access to technology.
Through internships in the Washington area, human relations students gain hands-on field experience, and prepare themselves to enter the workforce in their choice of several related fields such as education, social work, counseling, and public policy. Human relations majors may choose to add a minor in forensic psychology or criminal justice.
Students study human relations at Trinity as a major or as elective courses.
