Colleges Welcome Interdisciplinary Programs

Four long-standing and well-established TCU colleges will welcome interdisciplinary programs to their academic programming this fall. The realignment positions TCU to further strengthen academic excellence, scholarship and student support for disciplines central to TCU’s mission to educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in a global community.

While the School of Interdisciplinary Studies will not continue as a distinct school, all programs and disciplines will continue to broadly serve students campus-wide from new home colleges.

School of Interdisciplinary Studies

Inherently problem based, Interdisciplinary Studies connects diverse experts and methods to address complex challenges. It invariably contains an integrative element (for example, race, gender, sexuality, class) that brings together and benefits from traditional disciplinary knowledge and tools.

Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies

In addition to examining the experiences of marginalized communities in the U.S. and beyond, students explore race and ethnicity as active social, political, historical and cultural processes and use race and ethnicity as categories of analysis across time and space.
