Students who major in writing, rhetoric, and communication (WRC) ask important questions about how we express ourselves orally and through writing. The program encourages the development of both depth and breadth in writing and speaking skills.
WRC students design a senior project and participate in an oral defense similar to that of a graduate program. They receive a foundational education in communication that lends itself to further education or careers in law, applied communication, marketing, academia and much more. Our graduates have moved on to careers ranging from public relations professional to production assistant at MTV.
Transylvania equips its students with a wide range of educational and extracurricular experiences. Students have a variety of opportunities to apply their skills in campus organizations including the student newspaper, radio station, literary magazine, speech and debate team and more. The WRC faculty are deeply involved in campus activities such as the First-Year Academic Experience, the Writing Center and creative and expressive events throughout Lexington.
