TWU alumni belong to a wide range of sectors. A few fields in which grads tend to find work include the health care services industry, clinical care, and the education industry. The health care industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. TWU graduates in the acute care hospital industry are hard pressed to find, with less than five percent of former students taking up work in this field. Median pay for those who graduated from TWU amounts to $59K.


The number of female graduates who responded to the survey outweighs the number of men; the female-to-male ratio is more than 3 to 1.


The most lucrative professionals among TWU alumni are Family Nurse Practitioners; they earn a median annual salary of $92K. Also approaching the top of the pay scale at approximately $85K and around $75K, respectively, are Directors of Nursing and Physical Therapists. Payroll Managers face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $48K.


Many TWU students are Dallas, Texas-bound following college. Houston, Texas is also a common destination for TWU grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of about $62K. On the other hand, TWU alumni who end up in Fort Worth, Texas receive the lowest median salary of $47K. TWU alumni express interest in nearby Denton, Texas and Plano, Texas as well.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Adult Nurse Practitioner Studies from TWU can rake in a whopping average about $98K per year, more than any other degree from this school. A B.A. in Fashion Design offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($38K).


For former Pioneers, proficiency in Family Practice warrants a paycheck that is 65 percent more than other alumni salaries. Customer Service is a popular skill among TWU alumni, with less than ten percent of grads reporting using it on the job. In addition, those who are savvy in Budget Management, Acute Care, and Pediatrics are also considered highly skilled.

Benefits and Perks

Just two-fifths of alumni enjoy paid vacation and merely one in four survey participants get paid sick time. To plan for old age, a strong majority of alumni maintain savings accounts through a company's 401(k) plan. Dental insurance applies to the larger part of alums, and a strong majority of former students report health coverage. Texas Woman's University alumni are also on the receiving end of life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
