BA at Trinity

A Definite Edge

Vital inputs supplement the regular course as they meet the diverse learning needs of students and improve their employability. Moreover, these non-credit inputs build technical competencies, problem solving abilities, and managerial skills.

Computer Skills
Computer training relating to social science such as through data management is provided. This bridges the gap between the set curriculum and ever-evolving professional needs that require technical skills.

Related Interaction
