Opening minds and doors to success

TCU is all about the experience.

This is a place where students learn how to adapt to whatever the future might bring, develop critical thinking skills and expand their creativity. With a choice of rigorous academic programs in 131 undergraduate areas of study, 49 master's level programs and 23 areas of doctoral study, Horned Frogs have opportunities to search for meaning and examine values, yet graduate well-prepared for professional accomplishment.

Whether in the fine arts or business or engineering, Horned Frogs can develop their full creative potential here. For example, both MBA and undergraduate students at the Neeley School of Business benefit from an experience ranked at the top by Bloomberg Businessweek and U.S. News & World Report — not in spite of, but because of, the focus on the individual.

At TCU, professors love being in the classroom. These mentoring teacher-scholars also conduct well-published, leading-edge research, often with undergraduates at their sides.

Horned Frogs live, learn and play 24-7 in a 277-acre setting in a vibrant city. They work out in state-of-the-art recreation facilities, catch Big 12 NCAA athletic competition and participate in 200+ organizations, all without leaving the campus.

That's when they're not providing thousands of hours of volunteer service to their community, interning in New York or LA, practicing journalism in Washington, D.C., experiencing international business in China or perfecting Spanish in Seville.

It's how Horned Frogs are learning to change the world.


What does it mean to be educated? Does art imitate life, or does what we do really reflect what we read and watch? Is the two-party political system the bedrock of democracy, or do special interests and political action groups determine who holds office?

What questions do you have?

At TCU, we don't pretend to have all the answers. No institution of higher learning does. But we do provide the environment in which you can form your own ideas, discover your own solutions and pursue your own happiness.

You'll find a diverse learning community offering over 100 undergraduate majors across seven colleges - business, communication, education, fine arts, health and human sciences, humanities and social sciences, and science and engineering. Ninety-one percent of our professors hold the highest degrees in their fields. But equally important, they care about undergraduate education. They'll call you by name, and if you work hard, they'll even ask you to assist them with their research.

This is what college is all about. It's the latest word on the world we've inherited and the one we're making.

It's a look at life in greater context and with greater clarity and conviction.

It may even be a means to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

TCU rolls across some 270 picturesque tree-lined acres, and within its 60 buildings you'll discover some impressive accomplishments.

In the past three years, four TCU students have been named Goldwater Scholars, and one has been named a Gates Cambridge Scholar. Eighty different agencies - including federal and state governments, corporations and foundations - sponsor research at TCU.

The University is recognized as a pioneer in higher education; TCU is a top 100 school by U.S. News & World Report and has a freshman-to-sophomore retention rate of 90 percent. The Neeley School of Business is ranked at the top by both Bloomberg Businessweek and U.S. News & World Report . TCU also boasts one of US News' top 40 undergraduate engineering programs. TCU performing arts groups tour worldwide.

Some of TCU's most impressive recognition comes from employers and licensing groups -- nursing graduates earn the highest licensing pass rates in Texas.
