Director’s Message

If you are passionate about art and are willing to work hard, the School of Art will help you put your passion into practice.


The School of Art offers three areas of study: Art Education, Art History and Studio Art. Our NASAD (National Association for Schools of Art and Design) accredited programs include a variety of degree options, providing you the opportunity to find the right fit for your educational and career goals.

We offer a low student-to-teacher ratio which allows our faculty to have more personal interaction with our students.  This provides more opportunities for one-on-one mentorship and career planning. The faculty in the School of Art are all active in their fields presenting lectures around the world, exhibiting their art work in museums and galleries locally, regionally, nationally and internationally; preparing the next generation of art educators to enter the class room. Our curriculum provides a comprehensive education for those interested in the visual arts while including flexibility with degree options.

The School of Art has art-specific portfolio based scholarships to supplement TCU’s financial aid packages. In addition, a number of academic scholarships are offered through TCU’s Financial Aid office.

The College of Fine Arts and the School of Art are housed in the J.M. Moudy Building, a TCU architectural landmark designed by the renowned Connecticut architectural firm of Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates. Our facilities include state-of-the-art teaching spaces and technology with two art galleries showcasing the work of students and national / international professional artists.

An education from TCU’s School of Art provides opportunities in the classroom and community helpful in fueling your passion and allowing you to explore multiple career paths. We look forward to visiting with you and helping you put your passion into practice.
