Academic Programs



“The professors at Transylvania are unlike teachers at any other school, and you can tell the difference the minute you walk into a classroom. It’s the look they get in their eyes when they begin teaching, it's the way they smile when students really get into discussion. They care about what they teach, and they care that we, as students, are learning. And that makes all the difference.

"At Transy, our professors don’t treat us like numbers; we’re more than just names on a roster. We are learners, and they are here to teach us everything they can, to make sure the passion lives on.”

—Della McDonald ’14
