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 patterns that explain the evolution of people, places and environments, the study of geography brings this belief to life.

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

Study Abroad

Expand your horizons by studying abroad in more than 50 countries, plus service-learning trips overseas and internships around the globe. In addition to TCU’s semester, summer, and short-term programs, geography students explore the United States and the world on department-sponsored field trips.

Each year, students attend the American Association of Geographers annual meeting, where they present their research to peers and academic leaders from across the country.

Geography majors can also take international faculty-led field trips to destinations, such as Europe (Paris, Rome), Latin America (Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Costa Rica) and Australia.
