Student Experience

It’s all about connection.

We believe students thrive when they form relationships that make them feel connected — to each other, to the campus community and to the world around them. With its focus on the reasoning to help businesses, nonprofits and governments make better decisions, the study of economics brings this belief to life.

From small classes and student organizations to opportunities for internships, majoring in economics at TCU allows you to develop relationships with professors, discover the world and establish a strong academic and professional support network.



The Economics Club serves as an educational, social and professional resource to all students with a passion for economics. The club sponsors social events, guest speakers and pre-professional workshops for students to connect with economics faculty members, distinguished scholars from other universities and prominent business and civic leaders.
