College of Communication

The role of communication in the 21st century continues to be a vital and integral part of TCU's educational mission. Today, more than 1,000 students concentrate their studies within one school and two departments housed in the College of Communication. Degree programs are available in journalism, strategic communication, communication studies and radio-TV-film. The academic programs of the college exact an appropriate balance between professional training and liberal arts studies. Personal counseling and relatively small classes allow the faculty to give attention to the work of each student.

The college is organized into one school - the Schieffer School of Journalism - and two departments-Radio-TV-Film and Communication Studies-offering nine major fields of concentration. Each provides professional training in vocational fields for students planning careers and serious ad vocational training for those who wish to attain artistic ability without professional intent.
