Graduates of TWU work in a variety of sectors including the education industry, clinical care, and the health care services industry. The most popular career sector among alumni is the health care industry. Public K-12 education is not a popular industry for TWU grads, and less than two percent of them wind up in the field. The average starting salary for a graduate of TWU is $60K.


The number of female graduates outweighs the number of men; the school has a female-to-male ratio of more than 3 to 1.


The biggest paychecks among TWU alumni are earned by Family Nurse Practitioners — these former students make about $92K per year. The next biggest paychecks go to Directors of Nursing ($85K) and Physical Therapists ($75K). Sitting at the bottom of the pay scale are Payroll Managers, making an average of around $48K.


Many TWU students are Dallas-bound following college. The top-paying city popular with TWU alumni is Houston, which offers median salaries of approximately $62K. Texas Woman's University alumni often stay in Denton following graduation despite having one of the lowest median salaries among popular cities ($50K). Other cities of interest among TWU alumni include nearby Fort Worth and Plano.

Degree Major

TWU grads who hold a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) can expect to fare better than most fellow alumni, earning $92K per year. Annual salaries for those with a B.A. in English Language are the lowest of the pack, earning $40K.


Less than ten percent of TWU grads wind up using Microsoft Excel at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Operations Management commands a pay premium of 9 percent for former Pioneers. Experience with Customer Service, Microsoft Office, and Budget Management is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

Lacking in the benefits department, just half of the alumni report compensation for sick days and only one in three grads get vacation time. A fair portion of former students save up for retirement through a 401(k) plan. It is no small feat that a fair portion of alumni are given health coverage, and a majority of the survey participants accept dental insurance. Other benefits awarded to Texas Woman's University alumni include life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
