More than 45 bachelor’s 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.xxxTWU provides men and women with small class sizes traditionally expected at a private institution 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.

As a Carnegie-classified doctoral research university, TWU encourages its students to actively participate in faculty-led research. Students gain valuable experience through 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 in Dallas.

TWU’s main campus is in Denton, forty miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, consistently named a best college town in Texas and the U.S. The Denton campus features several new facilities including a state-of-the-art science research center, dining hall, student union, and residence halls.
