Learn More

The John V. Roach Honors College is a learning community of Academic Excellence where high-achieving students explore the complexities of knowledge. The Honors College embodies the first Lead On priority — Strengthening the Academic Profile and Reputation of TCU.

Leading research shows that high-achieving students blossom in environments with interdisciplinary and experiential learning. Honors students at TCU participate in interdisciplinary learning through a curriculum designed to explore big questions that push students outside of their comfort zones and outside of traditional classrooms. Experiential learning, in the form of research and creative projects, is guided by faculty mentors who apply fundamentals from the classroom to real-world scenarios.

The Honors experience develops critical thinking and problem-solving; introduces students to new ideas and diverse environments; awakens students’ innate curiosities; and instills a passion for lifelong learning. A major goal is to help our 1,230 Honors students to excel and to surpass even their own expectations. An Honors education exposes students to ongoing, Transformative Experiences, as reflected by finance major and Spanish minor, Kyle Hepting, “The experience I had was truly life-changing and opened my eyes to the impact I have on the world.”

To do more costs more. Philanthropy has fueled our current success, allowing students access to nationally and internationally renowned professors; multi-disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning; and small group discussions. To our many benefactors through the years, we are eternally grateful.

There is so much more we can do. With your help, we can support Academic Excellence and provide Transformative Experiences that prepares students for a vibrant world.
