I went in to Transy, not necessarily knowing what I wanted to do. And so I was very excited that Transy provided me with lots of opportunities to decide what I wanted to study.

Transylvania University offers a wide variety of majors, and we’re always adapting and updating the collection of majors that we offer.

I definitely would say there is something for everybody. We do have a self‑designed major, which a few of my friends have taken full advantage of. And I think it’s really interesting with us being a liberal arts college, how we’re able to combine different interests to kind of formulate a major really meant for you.

Transy’s general education curriculum drives every student to develop themselves in a way that it’s not just checking off boxes. It’s creating a full human.

You really get to explore any subject you’re passionate about and learn so much about the world in different academic realms.

The emphasis that the liberal arts has on reading and writing and self motivated research projects really do lend itself to this kind of economy.

Creativity, the capacity to collaborate effectively with people to solve problems. That’s what this kind of education really provides. It gives students the tools that will support them and really serve them well, not just in that first job or that first career, but to be able to adapt for that third or fourth career, they’re gonna have 25 years from now that doesn’t even exist today.

All of Transylvania’s 48 majors are rooted in the liberal arts, giving you a wide breadth of knowledge while diving deeply into your subject to help you develop the skills you need. And if those majors don’t cater to your specific interests, you have the ability to work with your adviser and our registrar’s office to design your own.

We believe strongly that exploring all fields is critical to being able to make connections. You’ll get to experience a variety of courses in your first year before you ever have to worry about declaring a major. And a dedicated adviser will help you throughout the process.
