Dean’s Message

Dr. Anne Helmreich portrait

The arts have the power to transform lives.


Through great literature, film and visual storytelling, artists help us make sense of the world, transport us to other places and allow us to see ourselves through a different lens.

At TCU’s College of Fine Arts, we’re committed to discovering and supporting that transformative potential in you. Deepen your talents, explore the diversity of cultural expression and prepare for a successful career at TCU.

Our distinctive programs enable students to work closely with our stellar faculty who are deeply committed to your success. Our unique learning laboratory draws together the resources of TCU’s welcoming campus and the outstanding arts and culture organizations of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. These resources are critically important to transitioning from the classroom to the real world and top job opportunities.

Our learning community extends nationally and globally. Many of our faculty and students participate in study abroad programs, including those in London, Florence and Paris, just to name a few. We attract students from across the United States as well as around the globe.

The College of Fine Arts is also a vital contributor to the arts community of North Texas. We host an exciting slate of visiting faculty, guest artists and performers who share their distinctive expertise with the campus community. We welcome you to attend one of our public programs, many of which are free.
