Pre-professional and pre-health studies are consistently ranked as two of the most popular majors.
In addition, students spend a significant amount of time learning about a diverse range of topics before selecting their area of concentration. Students have the option of participating in a variety of sports competitions, including those in basketball, baseball, cheerleading, cross country, dancing, eventing, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, field hockey, and volleyball. In addition, there are over 50 other student organizations and clubs that you can become a part of. Within six months of graduation, ninety-five percent of students had either continued their education or found employment.
The most well-known graduates of Transylvania University include a pair of US vice presidents, two justices of the US Supreme Court, and fifty US senators.

Caldwell and James Speed, who served as Attorney General during Lincoln’s administration.
The procedure for entering Transylvania is highly competitive and open to applicants from all around the world. The College of Fine Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences & Mathematics, and Social Sciences at the University of Transylvania currently [when?] provides a total of 46 majors, 37 minors, and many pre-professional paths among their four academic divisions. In addition to traditional majors like Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) and Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication (WRC), it also provides students with the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary studies or create their own majors should they so choose.
In 2018, Transylvania University became the first liberal arts college in the state of Kentucky to form a partnership with the Peace Corps to establish a Peace Corps Prep program. This diversity-focused program is designed to prepare undergraduate students for international development fieldwork and potential service in the Peace Corps.
A partnership between Transylvania University and Appalachian Regional Healthcare has also been announced. The purpose of this partnership is to encourage students from Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, either as a practitioner or an administrator, to enroll at Transylvania. Students that take part in the program will eventually find employment with ARH in their native regions and communities after they graduate.
