TCU Core Curriculum Diagram

The overlay feature of the TCU Core Curriculum is best captured in a diagram. Please go to http://www.core.tcu.edu/documents/TCUCCWorksheet052809.pdf to view the TCU Core Curriculum diagram.

As can be seen from the diagram, it is possible for students to take courses that will fulfill more than one of the core categories. For example, a sociology course might simultaneously satisfy the outcomes of social sciences and cultural awareness. If so, the student taking such a course would receive three credit hours and would satisfy both a social sciences and cultural awareness requirement.

Notes:

Students must complete at TCU:

  • The cultural awareness, global awareness, and citizenship and social values requirements of the Heritage, Mission, Vision and Values Curriculum; and
  • Six hours in Writing Emphasis courses.
