Study Abroad

Global and Intercultural Engagement

May Term Group in Shanghai

Transylvania offers countless opportunities to combine the excitement of travel with life-changing educational experiences, no matter your major.

We believe that a study abroad experience is a natural part of a liberal arts education. Living and learning in an unfamiliar setting among people with different backgrounds is a valuable way to understand more about yourself and the wider world. You will become better equipped to see similarities rather than differences and to make decisions that may have a global impact.

At Transy, you can choose to study abroad for a semester, summer, winter break, or during our unique May term.

Scholarships are available for summer and May Term study abroad, and students may use 100% of their Transylvania award money and federal/state aid for semester study abroad if participating in a GlobalTransy program.
