A Texas legislative act in 1901 led to the establishment of Texas Woman’s University. Originally operating as the Girls Industrial College, the school opened its doors in 1903. In 1957 the school officially became Texas Woman’s and has continued to operate as an independent public university in Texas ever since. In 1972, men were granted admission into the health science graduate school and in 1994 men were allowed to attend all programs offered by the university. The primary campuses are in Denton, Dallas, and Houston but there are also classes offered in Plano and Ft. Worth.
Though the University started as a very small college, it is now one largest campuses primarily for women in the United States. The goal of Texas Woman’s is to provide all students with an education that will help them grow personally and professionally. Students are prepared for leadership and service through high quality programs that will ignite the best potential in them.
Texas Woman’s University has received its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The business school is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

This program will allow students to take 51% of their program online and then they will have to visit one of the school’s locations to finish the other 49%. Students that choose this program will only have three Saturday classes to attend per course. Students may take their classes in Ft. Worth, Plano, Houston, or Denton. The program will also allow students to take a study tour, which are elective classes that can be taken in various countries like Mexico, Ireland, and Asia to name a few.
Through distance learning at Texas Woman’s, students will participate in interactive curriculums to make sure that the material is understood. Throughout the 36 credit hour program, students will be paired with an academic advisor that will help them schedule the classes that they need and keep them on track to graduate. Upon completion of the program, students will finalize their degree with a capstone class. This class is designed to pull information in from all previous classes and tests each student’s retention of information.
