Since 1890, the University of North Texas has been a catalyst for transformation for its students and the North Texas region. As the nation’s 24th largest public university, UNT is dedicated to providing an excellent educational experience to its 36,000 students while fueling the intellectual, economic and cultural engines of one of the largest, most dynamic regions in the United States.

A student-focused public research university, UNT graduated 8,400 students last year from its 12 colleges and schools and offers 98 bachelor’s, 82 master’s and 36 doctoral degree programs, many nationally and internationally recognized. As UNT’s strengths in science, engineering and technology grow, the university continues to nurture its core areas of distinction in music, education, social sciences, business, the arts and humanities. Leading Texas public universities in the number of Goldwater Scholars and designated a “Best in the West” university by The Princeton Review, UNT is known for its academic excellence.

As Dallas-Fort Worth’s largest and most comprehensive university, UNT is growing as a national leader in education, research and scholarship, student support and community engagement — the pillars of a great public research university. UNT’s ultimate mission is to give a green light to greatness by helping its students, region, state and nation excel.
