Read the World. Write a Way.

By studying literature and writing, you’ll learn how to make connections between ideas, construct persuasive arguments and respect multiple viewpoints. You’ll gain critical-thinking skills that translate to a range of professions — from law to journalism to social work.

Graduate Programs

TCU’s tradition of excellence in graduate studies combines intellectual development with practical training and professional mentoring. Because we admit only 10-12 students per year, we are able to give students individual attention throughout their degree program.
