Texas Woman’s University

Denton, Texas

THE NATION’S LARGEST woman-focused university, Texas Woman’s University helps students build a better future with a quality educational experience of leadership development, hands-on learning, diversity, and health and well-being.

A wide array of degree programs cover the sciences, business, nursing, health sciences, visual and performing arts, liberal arts, and education. Courses are offered in-person, online, and through hybrid formats.

Texas Woman’s provides men and women with small class sizes traditionally expected at private institutions, at a public school cost. A student–faculty ratio of 17:1 allows for personal attention that helps 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 the National Institutes of Health, Mayo Clinic, Texas Legislature, Southwest Airlines, Frito-Lay, NASA, and the Veterans Affairs Hospital.

Texas Woman’s main campus is just north of Dallas and Fort Worth in Denton, which is consistently named among the best college towns in Texas and the nation. The university’s health sciences institutes are in Dallas’s Southwestern Medical District and in Houston’s Texas Medical Center. The Denton campus features a state-of-the-art science research center and a recently renovated student union. In 2021, the Texas Legislature authorized a $100 million project to construct a health sciences building, which will focus on rural health.
