Academic Programs



How Do I Choose?

Transylvania's professors and academic advisors will ensure that you get a broad education that prepares you for the complexities of life in a diverse, ever-changing world. But it's up to you to decide how you will combine the academic opportunities Transylvania offers to create your special Transylvania experience.

Our academic programs are firmly rooted in the liberal arts tradition. Students are encouraged to seek connections between different disciplines and to challenge the barriers separating them. They are also encouraged to sample a variety of disciplines so they can fully appreciate the breadth of human knowledge as they strive to understand the world and their role in it.

Of course, as is common at most universities, upperclass students at Transylvania are also asked to concentrate coursework in a specific discipline before they graduate. By declaring a major and possibly a minor, students choose to focus on an academic field of inquiry that particularly interests them.

We hope you’ll decide to join us on campus—where your intellectual exploration is limited only by your imagination.
