TEXAS LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY (TLU) is dedicated to promoting a full undergraduate education through small class sizes and many opportunities for cross-disciplinary coursework and instruction. TLU offers 28 majors, 37 minors, 13 pre-professional programs, and 60 concentrations with new majors and programs including social entrepreneurship, nursing, and a master’s degree in athletic training that began in fall 2016.

The bachelor’s of science degree in nursing, started in 2014, provides students with the clinical and classroom hours and topics they need to sit for the state registered nurse licensing examination. A new general education curriculum—Compass—gives students credit for learning what happens outside as well as in the classroom.

More than 1,300 undergraduates attend TLU, which is spread across 184 tree-lined acres in historic Seguin, just 45 minutes from San Antonio or Austin. The university’s distinctive chapel anchors the campus and provides a spiritual touchstone where all faiths are welcome. Approximately two-thirds of TLU’s full-time undergraduates live in campus residence halls or in university-owned campus apartment complexes.

TLU prides itself on developing the whole student. The co-curriculum and extra-curriculum are developed and implemented by students, faculty, and staff to provide a variety of academic, social, and cultural activities and organizations. Special emphasis is placed on civic engagement and service learning, with 66 percent of the student body participating in community service activities.
