The Student Experience

Students in our courses come from a wide variety of cultures and regions and represent many different traditions and lifestyles. Our Department welcomes diversity in the classroom in terms of age, socio-economic background, culture, religion and sexual orientation.

The students who have taken courses in our areas have found them not only to be interesting and stimulating but also relevant to careers in further education in areas as diverse as Museum Studies, journalism and media, International Relations, Human Rights, and Law.

This is partly due to the fact that we aim to provide students with a broad educational experience where study tours, visits to diverse communities and engagement with international scholars and thinkers are central to undergraduate and postgraduate activities.

Students may also participate in Trinity's Electives which offers an opportunity to study outside your principal discipline. Trinity currently offers Electives modules in global environmental change, business studies, literature, film studies, geology, history, art and society, linguistics, law, philosophy, psychology, politics, science and sociology. These modules are designed specifically for students who are studying another subject area and are usually available to students in the Senior Freshman (second) or Junior Sophister (third) year.
