Since 1890, the University of North Texas (UNT) has been a catalyst for transformation for its students and the North Texas region. UNT is dedicated to providing an excellent educational experience to over 40,000 diverse students while fueling the intellectual, economic, and cultural progress of one of the most dynamic, fastest-growing regions in the United States. A student-focused, public, Carnegie Tier One Research University with an emphasis on sustainability, UNT offers 103 bachelor’s, 86 master’s, and 38 doctoral degree programs, 72 of which are ranked nationally in the top 100 programs. Located in Denton, 36 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, UNT is growing as one of the region’s largest and most comprehensive universities, with 4,600 dedicated faculty and staff members focused on helping students succeed, as well as more than 450 student organizations, 42 fraternities and sororities, and 145 academic and honor societies. UNT believes in the power of diversity and inclusion: in 2020, the University met one of its high-priority diversity goals being designated as a Hispanic Serving University, based on the diversity of its student body (25% Hispanic, 15% Black, 8% Asian, 1% American Indian, 7% International, and 42% Caucasian).
At the University of North Texas, it is expected that students will be exposed to many career development experiences throughout their academic tenure. These experiences are found throughout the campus and are not only centralized through the Career Center, but also integrated into the student’s academic college and co-curricular experiences. Students will be deliberately and strategically connected to career development opportunities from the time they transition to campus throughout their entire UNT experience.
The University of North Texas believes in the power of a caring and creative community, preparing students for careers in a rapidly changing world. UNT is celebrated as the state’s most creative public university, nationally recognized for its excellence in the arts. UNT strives to be a diverse and inclusive institution, creating knowledge and innovations that will shape the future while cultivating excellence in the next generation of scholars and leaders for the global community.
