Founded in 1901 as the Girls Industrial College, the institution evolved over the years in size and scope to become Texas Woman's University in 1957. The school’s dual mission bears a strong similarity to what it was when the institution was founded: to provide a liberal education and to prepare young women "for the practical industries of the age" with a specialized education. TWU continues today as a public university that offers a comprehensive catalog of academic studies, including baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degrees. The university has grown from a small college to a major university. TWU is the largest university primarily for women in the United States, with the main campus in Denton and health science centers in Dallas and Houston.
