What are your interests?



The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

How to Apply for Languages at Trinity

Posted on December 12, 2018
In an increasingly interconnected and multicultural world, advanced language skills and intercultural competencies will equip you for a wide variety of careers and will give you a distinct competitive advantage. Language competence is one of the biggest skill gaps in the Irish labour market and language graduates are highly soughtafter in a variety of sectors.

We invite you to study languages in Trinity’s School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies. It is a leading language school in Ireland and we are consistently ranked in the top 100 languages schools in the world.

Please note, that when applying for two languages, both of these languages are studied equally at entry level. For example, if you choose French + Modern Language - French (TR667), French and Italian will be studied equally on entry to that programme. The same is also true for other combinations such as Irish + Modern Language - French (TR669) etc.

Trinity Education system allows studying both languages equally throughout the 4 year programme (joint honours), or flexibility for students to decide which of the two languages they choose as their major or their minor subject from the third year on.

Our programmes will give you the opportunity for full immersion into the languages and cultures that you study. They will enable you to acquire a high level of language competence and fluency, combined with an in-depth understanding of the main cultures and societies in which these languages are spoken. The emphasis of our programmes is on interactive and communicative small-group teaching, often provided by native speakers, and our students benefit from a great deal of individual attention and support.

Our Approach A year or a semester studying abroad is one of the highlights of a student’s Trinity experience, and immersing oneself in the language and culture is also one of the most valuable ways of achieving fluency when you are studying a language. All our students are encouraged to spend a year or semester, or a minimum of two months, in one of our top-ranking partner universities abroad.
