Transylvania is a distinguished liberal arts college of approximately 1,100 students that is consistently ranked and praised in the leading national college guides.
Transylvania offers 39 majors plus the option of designing an individual major. Students gain a strong grounding in liberal education, however the University also emphasizes career planning. A major in any discipline allows entry to a wide variety of opportunities after graduation, ranging from graduate or professional school to specialized positions.
Small classes and close student-faculty relationships are among Transylvania’s greatest assets. Although many faculty members are recognized for their research and writing, their primary concerns are teaching and advising.
