Bob Schieffer College of Communication

The role of communication in the 21st century is an integral part of TCU’s educational mission. More than 1,000 students in the Bob Schieffer College of Communication are pursuing degrees in journalism, strategic communication, communication studies, sports broadcasting, and film, television and digital media. The academic programs of the college exact an appropriate balance between professional training and liberal arts studies. Relatively small classes enable the faculty to give attention to the work of each student.
