Liberal Arts Education

Transylvania is firmly committed to the concept of liberal arts education—the idea of lifelong learning and broad exposure to knowledge. A Transylvania education will prepare you not only for the workplace, but for learning and growing outside your profession.

We offer 36 majors and the option to design a custom major to fit your interests. Small classes and a passionate faculty ensure that Transylvania students will receive a top-notch education and plenty of individual instruction.

Our Campus

Transylvania’s campus is within walking distance of many city attractions. We occupy four city blocks in the historic downtown Lexington, putting us three blocks away from a very active nightlife, including big-ticket and grassroots concerts and plays.

Transylvania puts a strong emphasis on maintaining a community atmosphere. From art displays to sporting events, on-campus activities are abundant.

And you won’t have to worry about going alone. When you get to campus, new student orientation introduces you to a small group of your peers, and Transylvania’s Greek life is one of the most active in the country.
