Independent problem solving is the best way for students to learn science and prepare for productive intellectual lives, no matter what field they will work in. Our professors have degrees from leading universities including Harvard, Yale, MIT, Brown, and Texas A&M, and they encourage students to join their research programs. Our molecular genetics and organic and physical chemistry labs include semester-long independent projects, and many other labs have shorter independent projects. In all of our laboratories, all students have the opportunity to use the most modern instruments to ask and answer questions that are on the cutting edge of biochemical research. These instruments include a 300MHz high field NMR, FT-IR, UV/Visible, GC/Mass, Raman and fluorescent spectrometers, DNA sequencer, high speed centrifuges, HPLC and gas chromatography, and electrophoresis equipment.
Transylvania University admits students regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other classification protected by federal or state law or local ordinance.
