POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • TCU’s Neeley School of Business ranks among the Top 25 undergraduate business schools in the nation, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The Economist ranks TCU MBA faculty second in the world.
  • TCU’s Bob Schieffer College of Communication is the first Campus Consortium partner in Texas for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
  • In a “Nature of Giving” class, students in TCU’s John V. Roach Honors College operate like a charitable foundation, spending a semester researching, visiting, and debating the merits of nonprofit organizations that will ultimately be awarded real money.

TEXAS CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY (TCU) is all about the experience. With a choice of 113 undergraduate areas of study, students have opportunities to cultivate broader perspectives, as well as to encourage and challenge one another, emerging as leaders who have the capacity and conscience to make a difference for the greater good.

TCU’s academic culture promotes interdisciplinary thinking and collaboration to give students a bigger worldview. Professors love teaching, and mentoring and connecting with students are top priorities. The same professors conduct cutting-edge research, often with undergraduates at their side.

Horned Frogs learn, live, and play on a 283-acre, official Tree Campus USA, shaded by a forest of more than 3,000 trees. All new construction is LEED-certified at the Gold or Silver level, highlighting TCU’s commitment to sustainability. The Campus Commons is home to the university union, residence halls, and academic facilities. In the Intellectual Commons, the library and new academic buildings provide technologically advanced environments that complement TCU’s other state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories.

When not in class or studying, students can work out at top-of-the-line recreation facilities, catch Big 12 NCAA athletic competitions, and choose from among 240 co-curricular organizations—all without leaving the campus. TCU music, dance and theater performances, along with art exhibitions, bring the larger community to campus and contribute to the cultural life of North Texas.
