College of Arts & Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences is Trinity’s historic liberal arts women’s college. CAS is committed to equipping and empowering women with the the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be global leaders in the 21st century.
Contemporary challenges, ranging from income inequality, to environmental sustainability, to educating our citizenry demand that we examine issues, apply information, and assess solutions with a variety of methodologies and disciplinary lenses. At Trinity, students complete a General Education curriculum grounded in the liberal arts disciplines (humanities, social sciences and sciences) and designed to build essential and transferable critical thinking, communication, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills.
True to our university mission, this grounding in the liberal arts is integrated with professional preparation. Trinity’s College of Arts and Sciences has designed its curriculum, teaching and academic advising and support services to enable students to develop their full potential as scholars, citizens and, above all, human beings who live purposefully and well.
Trinity students can earn degrees in the following majors and other programs. Students will learn about many of these majors by taking a variety of courses in the General Education Curriculum. Academic Advisors and faculty are also eager to work with students to identify strengths and interests that can inform the major decision.
Student Life at Trinity
For Trinity students, an active life outside of the classroom is an integral part of the college experience. Many choose to explore the varied cultural, historical, and community events that Washington, D.C., offers. A student can research her family tree at the National Archives, attend a play or hear a symphony at The Kennedy Center, attend an event at an international Embassy, visit the White House, or serve as a Smithsonian volunteer.
A wide range of on-campus activities take place every day that involve all members of the Trinity Community, including athletic events, public lectures, meetings of student organizations, and Trinity Traditions that honor students as they progress toward graduation: First Year Convocation, Sophomore Pin Ceremony, Junior Ring Ceremony and Senior Cap and Gown Events.
Trinity aims to develop students in mind, body and spirit. To that end, we encourage students to engage in recreation and sports to build self-confidence, teamwork and healthy lifestyles. Trinity is a member of NCAA Division III. Trinity women compete at the varsity level in a range of sports and also enjoy a variety of intramural courses, including yoga, weight training, and modern dance.
