A view of the TCU Campus Commons


Career options are as varied and diverse as the liberal arts themselves.

Our graduates have rewarding jobs in law enforcement, public policy, education, government, banking and finance, environmental protection and urban planning.

A liberal arts degree helps you to critically and creatively solve complex problems and to synthesize diverse information to effectively formulate a point of view. At AddRan College of Liberal Arts, you’ll embrace the power of ideas, explore cultural values and social justice, and discover the richness and complexity of our knowledge-based global economy. A liberal arts degree provides you with a strong foundation for lifelong learning and enables you to be flexible and nimble in a rapidly changing world.

You’ll graduate prepared not just for one career, but for many.
