About Texas Wesleyan University

Texas Wesleyan does college differently. We’re small and put the focus on what’s most important — you. You’ll have more time to ask professors questions, more time to get to know your classmates, more time to plan your career. And with merit scholarships up to $22,000 a year, you can afford to get the education you deserve. We have over 30 undergraduate majors that set you up for success after graduation — whether you’re teaching the next generation of students, researching animal life in exotic locations, taking the stage as a performing artist or attending graduate school. But class isn't the only part of campus. Join student organizations, burn some calories at the gym or take part in campus events, like trivia night or gardening classes. We also have multiple residence halls and two dining facilities with Which Wich, rotating restaurants, a salad bar and more. You'll also get access to free career services, even after graduation. It's all part of going "Smaller. Smarter."
