Overview of University of North Texas (UNT)

About this school

The University of North Texas, founded in 1890, is a public, comprehensive institution. It provides students the opportunity to live next to one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic metropolitan areas in the U.S., Dallas/Fort Worth, while maintaining a midsized community environment. Programs are offered through the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, and Music; the Schools of Community Service, Library and Information Sciences, Merchandising and Hospitality Management, and Visual Arts. As a doctoral-granting institution, UNT provides opportunities for undergraduates to work closely with nationally and internationally recognized faculty, participate in research projects and study in advanced labs, music halls and classrooms. Students have access to a full range of campus activities and service organizations, including NCAA Division I sports, internationally recognized music performances and outstanding art exhibitions. Cooperative education experiences are abundant, and students often take internships with some of the largest corporations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. UNT is truly a partner in the success of its students and alumni. Its 500-acre campus is located in Denton, 39 miles from Dallas.
