in the HMVV Curriculum will cultivate the broader skills
and awareness associated with TCU's distinctive Heritage,
Mission, Vision, and Values. TCU's Heritage will
be explored via the study of Religious Traditions, Historical
Traditions, and Literary Traditions. Similarly, TCU's
Mission, Vision, and Values will be explored via courses
that focus on Cultural Awareness, Global Awareness, and
Citizenship and Social Values.
design, these HMVV categories are not bound to any particular
discipline or department. For example, courses proposed
for Religious Traditions, Historical Traditions, or Literary
Traditions need not be offered exclusively by the English,
Religion, or History Departments. By opening each
category to a range of disciplinary perspectives, we hope
to encourage pedagogical innovation and conversation across
traditional disciplinary boundaries.
proposed for the HMVV curriculum may also meet the outcomes
of a category in the HEE curriculum or couple with courses
required for the major, minor or general curriculum.
For example, a Sociology course might simultaneously satisfy
the outcomes of Social Science and Cultural Awareness.
If so, the student taking such a course would receive three
credit hours and would have satisfied a Social Science requirement
and the Cultural Awareness requirement with one three credit
course. As another example, a course required for
the B.B.A. degree might satisfy the outcomes for the Global
Awareness category, in which case the student enrolled in
such a course would receive three hours credit and would
satisfy one of the requirements of the B.B.A degree and
the Global Awareness requirement with one three credit course.
