TCU Center fro Texas Studies


"The Center for Texas Studies at TCU is designed to celebrate all that makes Texas distinctive. It is housed in AddRan College of Humanities and Social Sciences, where various disciplines and programs can act in concert to foster and nurture the essence of Texas. History is, of course, central, but Texas literature, anthropology, ethnography, politics, religions, philosophy and design and textiles all represent elements that are a part of the incredible mosaic of Texas.
Texas carries a rich heritage, unmatched elsewhere in the United States. The historic, cultural, geological and linguistic diversity that derives from the earliest Native American inhabitants, through the Spanish, French, Mexican and Republic eras and into the twenty-first century marks Texas not only as unique, but also as a model of how to celebrate the past, the present and the future. This abundance that makes Texas distinctive and Texans proud must be carefully preserved, shared and commemorated. Come join us as the Center for Texas Studies at Texas Christian University aims to do all three."
Gene A. Smith, Ph.D. Director, Center for Texas Studies, Professor, Department of History, Texas Christian University
