Working at University of North Texas

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 26th largest public university, UNT is dedicated to providing an excellent educational experience to its 36,000 students while fueling the intellectual, economic and cultural progress of one of the largest, most dynamic regions in the United States.

A student-focused public research university, UNT graduates more than 8,500 students each year from its 12 colleges and schools and offers 97 bachelor’s, 82 master’s and 35 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.

By providing access, welcoming diversity and strengthening collaborations with our many educational, business and community partners, as well as building new partnerships across the globe, UNT's faculty and staff work each day to prepare students for the challenges they will meet in our changing world.

Fostering global understanding and promoting cultural appreciation are central to preparing tomorrow's successful global leaders. Our strategic international partnerships seek to improve quality of life, facilitate the exchange of ideas and culture, and allow for important research addressing global issues. UNT's campus benefits from a rich diversity of about 2,500 international students representing 140 countries.

UNT faculty produce groundbreaking research in a wide range of disciplines spanning the sciences, mathematics, engineering and technology while also making nationally recognized contributions in the arts and humanities. The College of Music is one of the nation’s best music colleges with an internationally respected jazz program. UNT has the oldest program in emergency administration and planning and a unique program in applied philosophy and environmental ethics.

UNT also is home to many national centers and institutes, including the Net-Centric Software and Systems Center — a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center; the Center for Electronic Materials Processing and Integration; the Institute of Applied Science; the Center for Advanced Scientific Computing and Modeling; and the Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity.

UNT has developed many state-of-the-art research facilities, such as the federally funded Center for Advanced Research and Technology, one of the nation’s most extensive facilities for powerful materials characterization and analysis; a high-performance computational facility; and a clean room/nanofabrication research facility (under construction). UNT’s research extends outside the academy as well, with field stations as close as a neighboring lake and as far away as southern Chile.

In addition, UNT is developing Discovery Park, a research park with technology incubator facilities on a 300-acre property near the main campus. The university also has developed a Design Research Center in the heart of the Dallas design district.

As the largest and most comprehensive university in the North Texas region, 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.
