College of Fine Arts Degrees
The College of Fine Arts offers the following degrees:
All students majoring in the College of Fine Arts who wish to pursue an additional major in the college must satisfy all degree requirements of the additional major, including courses specified in the TCU Core Curriculum as particular to that degree and major.
Students who wish to pursue an additional degree in another college, if additional majors are permitted in that college, must complete all degree requirements for each major, including courses specified in the TCU Core Curriculum as particular to each degree and major.
Students outside the College of Fine Arts whose home college permits an additional major in the College of Fine Arts must complete all degree requirements for the additional major, including courses specified in the TCU Core Curriculum for that particular degree and major.
Requirements for Graduation
Students must request a degree plan from the College of Fine Arts dean's office when they have completed 54 semester hours (usually at the end of the sophomore or the beginning of the junior year). The Intent to Graduate form (available from Moudy 119 North) must be completed when a student has finished 96 hours of coursework or two semesters prior to graduation, whichever comes first.
Approval of the department chair is required for all nontraditional courses, i.e., special problems, independent study, research problems, etc.
Beyond the studies specified for each major, the bachelor's degree is built on the TCU Core Curriculum that applies to all University graduates.
Students wishing to take courses at another institution, following their admission to TCU must secure approval through the Office of the Dean of the College of Fine Arts before enrolling in them. Additionally, once admitted to TCU, students may only take 12 hours of coursework from another institution. Any exceptions to this rule require permission from students' advisers, department chair/director and assistant to the dean.
Courses applied toward any major in the College of Fine Arts may not be taken on the Pass/No-Credit basis.
