Student Experience

Birdwatching

TCU and the Biology Department offer a wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom to broaden and enhance student experiences.

 

Research

Research play a key role in the lives of our faculty and students are invited to work alongside faculty in pursuit of new scientific knowledge.  Research offers students the opportunity to take what they have learned in the classroom and put it in to action, all while making connections with their faculty mentor and other students in the laboratory.
