The field of trauma advocacy trains people to serve as liaisons to victims and survivors of relationship abuse, including child abuse, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, domestic assault, and elder abuse. Those choosing to make a difference in the lives of others and get involved may choose this minor.

Trauma advocates often work for the county or state to provide resources, support, and practical guidance through the process of reporting a crime, seeking counseling or legal help, the criminal justice system, and recovery. Being trauma informed is also essential for successful delivery of many related careers. This minor is particularly well suited to pair with majors such as psychology, human services, criminal justice, pre-law, human resources, and education. This minor is currently only available in an online format.
