A Second Major For Everyone

As a new Graceland student, you will graduate with at least two majors: one or more in the program(s) of your choice and a new major in Transformational Leadership that will prepare you to be a more dynamic, empathetic, and collaborative leader: a transformational leader.  This cutting-edge program is only available at Graceland and is included at no extra charge and will not delay your graduation.

At Graceland, inclusivity and belonging aren’t just words.

When you ask someone about their time in college, the first things they mention typically aren’t the classes they took or the books they read, but the friendships they made and the adventures they had. At Graceland, the student community is built around the unique House system. Guided by our unshakeable guiding principle of inclusion, the Graceland House system combines on-campus housing and student government to create an instant community for all first-year students — and that community continues through graduation and beyond. Although each House is unique, each with its own name, symbol, colors and traditions, they all focus on the same things: coming together, having fun, and making your voice heard in your campus community.
