Human Relations (B.A.)


Provost Carlota Ocampo engages with students during classFor students who want to better understand human behavior and the social world, our human relations major offers them the opportunity to develop a scholarly perspective in the two major social science areas of psychology and sociology. This interdisciplinary approach fosters intellectual sophistication by demonstrating how these disciplines, both separately and combined, interpret the world and endeavor to answer a wide range of questions concerning human behavior and group life.

Our human relations major embodies many of the primary goals of the Trinity curriculum by focusing on issues of gender, diversity, social justice, ethics, public policy and technology. We are committed to experiential and service learning outside the classroom (with a special emphasis on social justice and advocacy), and the program thus promotes internships and practica in our students’ areas of interest.
