Trinity Washington University to Launch New Global Affairs Major in Fall 2021

Trinity Washington University is pleased to announce the launch of a new Global Affairs major in the fall of 2021.

Today’s world of political institutions, economic organizations and social movements requires students to have a broad range of knowledge and skills to be successful on a local, national, or global platform. Trinity’s new Global Affairs major equips students with the skill set to navigate, serve, and lead on a global scale.

The Trinity Global Affairs program is distinguished by four areas of concentration that focus on several of the most career-relevant fields in today’s global society. Students select one of these concentrations:

  • Africana Studies
  • Foreign Policy, Diplomacy and Security
  • Global Economics and Business
  • Latin American Studies

Global Affairs majors take foundational and methodology courses, language and cultural studies classes and a senior seminar. The foundational courses lay the groundwork essential to understanding the contemporary world and students are introduced to a wide range of topics including economics and trade, political organizations, and social justice issues.

Two career-focused mentorship courses provide Global Affairs majors engaging opportunities to explore career paths, connect with mentors and develop professional skills for successful careers both in the U.S. and internationally.

Trinity’s Global Affairs major prepares graduates for a variety of careers including as journalists, policy analysts, legislative assistants, diplomats and researchers. This major also provides

an excellent foundation for law school or graduate school in international affairs, political science, history, and public policy.
