Texas Christian University is a place where students learn how to adapt to whatever the future might bring, develop critical thinking skills and forge new paths. With a choice of rigorous academic programs in 119 undergraduate areas of study, 53 master’s level programs and 28 areas of doctoral study, Horned Frogs are primed for professional success and personal achievement after graduation.

This is an education in which people are the priority. The TCU experience enables our students to broaden their intellect, their beliefs and their values — the qualities most needed for leadership in a rapidly evolving environment. Whether in the fine arts or health or engineering, Horned Frogs can discover their passions and expand their talents.

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

Horned Frogs live, learn and play 24-7 in a beautiful setting in dynamic Fort Worth. They work out in state-of-the-art recreational facilities, watch Big 12 NCAA athletic competition and participate in 225 organizations, all without leaving the campus.

That is when they’re not providing thousands of hours of volunteer service to their community, interning in New York or London, practicing journalism in Washington, D.C., experiencing international business in Hong Kong or perfecting interior design skills in Florence.

This is how Horned Frogs are learning to change the world.
