Psychology (B.A.)

Overview

CAS Students D70108Our psychology students have open minds, curiosity about human behavior and a willingness to challenge stereotypes and beliefs. Our students have a sincere interest in helping others and pursue careers in areas such as counseling, medicine, human resources and community services. Through volunteer work and internships, students gain practical, on-the-job experience in these areas, and they receive a solid foundation in research, statistics and experimental methods.

Psychology students complete formal coursework as well as internship experiences, and guest speakers from the greater Washington area, field trips to mental health facilities, and participation in local and regional conferences are regularly scheduled. In addition, co-curricular activities are provided for students through the Psychology Club and Trinity’s chapter of Psi Chi, the international honor society in Psychology.

The psychology program’s goals are to prepare students for careers and/or graduate study in mental health and human services fields through a solid foundation in research, theory and practical skills.
