For 2012 and for the second year in a row, U.S. News & World Report ranked Texas Wesleyan University in the #1 tier of regional universities in the West. Founded in 1890, Wesleyan has served Fort Worth for more than 120 years—longer than any other institution of higher learning.
As a small, private, four-year coeducational university, Wesleyan delivers a solid undergraduate curriculum and select graduate programs to a diverse student body. Undergraduate degrees are offered in 29 major fields of study within four schools: Arts and Letters, Natural and Social Sciences, Business, and Education.
Texas Wesleyan’s strong liberal arts curriculum, with its pre-professional focus, prepares students for leadership in professional pursuits or for entrance into graduate school. Wesleyan students develop proficiency in critical thinking and analytic reasoning – the same skills sought by employers and graduate programs.
As most students will enter the workforce before returning to graduate school, Texas Wesleyan offers high-quality graduate professional programs that are accessible to working adults. In addition to graduate programs in business, education, and counseling, Wesleyan is home to one of only two law schools in North Texas as well as the nation’s largest graduate programs of nurse anesthesia.
A United Methodist institution, Texas Wesleyan welcomes individuals of all faiths and is thoroughly ecumenical in its practices. With an average student-to-faculty ratio of 16-to-1, students truly learn on a first-name basis. And they leave with a new degree of confidence…from Texas Wesleyan University.
