CAREERS & INTERNSHIPS
Knowing historical facts, governmental structure, and teaching methods is useless without the opportunity to put it into action. During your time at Trinity, you will have the chance to engage in classroom observation, lesson planning, and student teaching at local middle and high schools, or even abroad.
As a student, you will have the opportunity to step outside the classroom in your studies as you re-enact historic battles, travel and study abroad, and hear seminars that will deepen your knowledge of eras and events.
