Connecting experts, ideas and communities.

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.

Women and Gender Studies

TCU’s Department of Women and Gender Studies puts women, gender, and sexuality at the center of academic investigation. Our programs promote inquiry into the intersections of gender with other identity categories; the workings of power in society; and the means of advancing social justice and equality.
