What Sets Us Apart


We require all students to take a religion course during their time at TCU. But this isn’t just about upholding the tradition of the “C” in our school’s name. We want all of our students to explore whatever facet of religion they’re interested in.

The religion department at TCU offers courses that explore the role, origins and impacts of multiple religions across our world.

Career Prospects


No matter what you want to do, understanding religion is essential to understanding humanity. When you study religion, you’re studying meaning – how we interpret, govern and determine our purpose in the world around us.
