Welcome to the Graduate School

Dr. Larry LeFlore, Ph.D.Thank you for your interest in the Texas Woman's University Graduate School. As a comprehensive public university, primarily for women, TWU is proud to offer both women and men opportunities to gain research and teaching skills, to prepare for success in increasingly competitive professional career markets, and to achieve personal goals.  

Over 5,000 graduate students at TWU already are engaged in studies and research in a broad range of areas from the arts and sciences to professional programs in allied health and education. These diversified programs leading to 23 different doctoral degrees and 66 master's degrees are supported by excellent library and computer resources and by well-equipped laboratories and other support services. In addition to the programs offered on the main campus in Denton, a variety of health-related programs are available at TWU's sites in Houston and Dallas.

TWU boasts an outstanding graduate faculty who hold degrees from major universities throughout the nation. Faculty members are committed to excellent, innovative teaching, and research. They also place a high premium on student advising, mentoring, and individual student development.

A decision to pursue graduate study can be one of the most important decisions you will make, and you should seek as much information as possible. This website is intended to answer questions you may have about TWU and its specific programs. I encourage you also to visit the campus if at all possible so that you can tour the facilities and visit with faculty in your field of interest. Finding the right match in a specific program for your intellectual and professional goals and aptitudes is not always easy, but it is critical to your success in graduate school. I hope you find that match at Texas Woman's University.
