I don't know how to pronounce the word "THE" when it comes before the sound Y like in:
"the universe"

is it with the EE sound like in "SEE", or is it just a schwa.

In other words, I don't know if the Y sound is considered a vowel sound or not

    The Y sound is considered a consonant in English.

    Use the schwa vowel in the universe (unless you stress the for some reason).
