Texas Wesleyan University

Our mission at Texas Wesleyan University is to develop students to their full potential as individuals and as members of the world community. Texas Wesleyan University, founded in 1890 in Fort Worth, is a United Methodist institution with a tradition in the liberal arts and sciences and a focus on professional and career preparation.



Texas Wesleyan University was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in 1890. A committee under the direction of Bishop Joseph S. Key explored locations for a campus and settled on a site east of Fort Worth donated by area pioneers, A.S. Hall, W.D. Hall, and George Tandy. 


The University endeavors to create a learning environment where each student is provided an opportunity to pursue individual excellence, to think clearly and creatively and to communicate effectively. The University also strives to develop a sense of civic responsibility and spiritual sensitivity, with a commitment to moral discrimination and action. Texas Wesleyan University strives to develop informed, responsible and articulate citizens.


Research is a great way for you to apply what you're learning in the classroom to real-world problems. We're providing you the opportunity to develop your critical thinking skills in an actual laboratory setting. You might even get the chance to present your findings at one of our events. Take a look at the different research projects you can get involved in.


Career Services helps you develop a resume, cover letters and thank you notes, networking, job-search etiquette, and interview preparation.
