Texas Woman's University

Texas Woman’s University (historically the College of Industrial Arts and Texas State College for Women, commonly known as TWU) is a co-educational university in Denton, Texas, United States with two health science center branches in Dallas, Texas and Houston, Texas. While male students are accepted into all programs, the school is better known as the largest state-supported university for women in the United States. TWU’s nursing doctoral program is the largest in the world.
TWU is one of only four “independent” public universities in Texas (i.e., not affiliated with any of Texas’ five public university systems).

Texas Woman’s University occupies a notable position in higher education as the nation’s largest university primarily for women. Its campuses in Denton, Dallas and Houston are joined by an e-learning campus offering innovative online degree programs in business, education and general studies. Nine consecutive years of growth have produced a record enrollment of 14,180. TWU serves the citizens of Texas in many important ways, including:

  • Graduating more new healthcare professionals than any other university in Texas
  • Easing the teacher shortage by placing highly qualified professionals in the classroom
  • Offering a liberal arts-based curriculum that prepares students for success in a global society
  • Conducting research that impacts the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity, osteoporosis, stroke and diabetes.
