Texas Christian University prepares global leaders with excellence, perspective and integrity to become ethical leaders and responsible citizens of the global community. 


This is a place where students learn how to adapt to whatever the future might bring, develop critical thinking skills and ignite their creativity. With a choice of rigorous academic programs in 117 undergraduate areas of study, 66 master’s level programs and 37 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 challenges our students to broaden their intellects, 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.


The TCU academic culture is vibrant, personal and rigorous, nurturing creative and intellectual thinking within a friendly, inclusive community of support. At TCU, professors love being in the classroom. The investment professors make in their students provides a university experience infused with confidence and capability, care and ethics, intelligence and perspective.


These mentoring teacher-scholars also conduct well-published, leading-edge research, often with undergraduates at their side.


Horned Frogs learn, live and play on a 302-acre "green" campus where 30 new buildings and renovation projects have been LEED-certified at the Gold or Silver level, highlighting TCU's commitment to sustainability. The Campus Commons is the heart of the university – home to the university union, residence halls and academics. Across University Drive, facilities in the new Intellectual Commons are technologically advanced and media-rich to complement TCU's state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories.


Students find here a sense of spirited belonging. When not in class or studying, they can work out in top-of-the-line recreation facilities, catch Big 12 NCAA athletic competitions, and choose from more than 200 co-curricular organizations – all without ever leaving 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 Spanish in Seville.


This is how Horned Frogs blaze new trails and become an unrelenting force for the greater good.
