The academic experience in TCU’s history department is vibrant, challenging and flexible – allowing students to choose from a wide variety of courses and emphases.

The department’s particular strengths include military history, gender, labor, the history of Texas, indigenous peoples of the Americas, political history, environmental history and empires.
