Texas Woman’s University

Denton, Texas

THE NATION’S LARGEST woman-focused university, Texas Woman’s University is committed to helping students build a better future through a quality education that includes leadership development, experiential learning, service, and health and wellbeing.

A wide array of degree programs covers the sciences, business, nursing, health sciences, visual and performing arts, liberal arts, and education.

Texas Woman’s offers women and men small classes at low cost that provide personal attention to help students thrive in the classroom and succeed in the workplace.

The university encourages its students to participate in faculty-led research as well as internships and partnerships with institutions and organizations such as NASA, the National Institutes of Health, Southwest Airlines, Frito-Lay, and the Veterans Affairs Hospital.

The university’s main campus is just north of Dallas and Fort Worth in Denton, which is consistently named among the best college towns in the nation. The university’s health sciences institutes are in Dallas’s Southwestern Medical District and in Houston’s Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest.

The Denton campus features a state-of-the-art science research center and a recently renovated student union. In 2023, Texas Woman’s broke ground on a $107 million health sciences building, which will expand health-related programming, increase community health services, and focus on rural health outreach. In 2024, the university plans to enroll its first cohort in an aviation program that seeks to increase the number of women commercial pilots.
