If music is your forte, make your debut at UNT’s College of Music. You’ll learn from distinguished faculty members who have received international recognition and Grammy awards, like professor and professional opera singer Molly Filmore. Students who want to build their repertoire can take their talents to the stage and the community. For example, if you’re planning to become a music educator, you can put your teaching skills to the test by giving lessons to kids at local schools or helping out with Instrument Petting Zoo. No ponies or alpacas here! This event is all about introducing kids to instruments by showing them how to strum guitars and toot tubas. Dreaming to play for live audiences someday? Nail an audition for one of the 70 ensembles like the UNT Symphony Orchestra and you could perform for hundreds at the Murchison Performing Arts Center. UNT also offers degrees in composition, conducting, history, and theory, so you have lots of ways to orchestrate your ideal music career.

Bachelor's in Interior Design, Class of 2014

U The Interior Design department’s faculty and staff are amazing people and professionals. Many are certified or registered designers with other credentials such as LEED certification and they stay up to date with innovations in design and academics. Also, the Interior Design program requires students to obtain and complete an internship as a required class. I was able to complete my internship on campus with UNT’s Facilities Planning, Design, and Construction Department, where I had the opportunity to work on projects that would better my university for years to come, such as The Study Café in the Willis Library. The hands on experience I gained through my internship and the Interior Design program were essential to my success after college.

M.S. Merchandising, Class of 2015

U I enjoyed my entire Merchandising program, and I got to see it progress from the School of Merchandising to the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism, a transition which led to more course options and study abroad opportunities. It is one of the only schools in the state of Texas that has such a diverse core content for Merchandising with specialized teachers to match. From digital retailing to textiles to consumer theory, the program provides enough options for you to personally pick an area that interests you and run with it.

Chelsea
Bachelor's in Psychology, Class of 2014

U The thing that I liked most about being a student at UNT would have to be the sense of community the students and faculty had together. We were a large school but also small enough to walk on campus and see familiar faces. Luckily, the professors that I had in the College of Arts and Sciences were always willing and able to stay after class for discussion if you were not able to pick up on something they lectured during class. I often felt like I was getting a small college experience on a campus of almost 40,000 people.

Popular Questions
Who are the notable alumni?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

The list of famous UNT alumni is just about as long as the line at Chik-Fil-A at lunchtime (and yes, there’s one of those in the University Union in case you’re wondering). For starters, Norah Jones, the Grammy Award winner and modern queen of jazz got her start in UNT’s Jazz Studies program. Drummer for the Eagles Don Henley and Musician Meat Loaf are two other former UNT students who hit #1 on the Billboard charts during their careers. It’s also where Dr. Phil McGraw, better known simply as Dr. Phil, earned his graduate and professional degrees in psychology. And if you’re a sucker for a good vampire novel, you probably know Ann Rice, author of Interview with a Vampire and over 30 other bestselling horror and fantasy novels. Lastly, here’s one for the football fans: 2009 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner Brian Waters and Dallas Cowboys Running Back Lance Dunbar also went to UNT.

What is the campus setting like?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Two words are consistently used to describe UNT: big and bold. The campus is 875 acres of sprawling campus greenery spotted with larger-than-life brick buildings that flaunt historic and modern flair. The 14 residence halls, which offer living options from singles to suite-style, each have their own character. Some halls offer themed housing like UNT Serves, where residents share a passion for giving back and tackle local and national service projects together. There is also a Student Health and Wellness Center that provides an exceptionally wide spectrum of health services, from traditional health care services to dental, mental health, massage therapy, nutrition, eye care, x-rays, screenings, and pharmacy services. Did you know UNT also has a full service bank and a money management center where students can learn how to budget? As a student you get all of this and a big, bold helping of so much more.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

You can get a UNT education no matter where you live. The school mostly offers online degrees and certificates at the graduate level. Options include marketing, special education, library sciences, applied behavior analysis, storytelling, hospitality management, and health informatics. Students can also enroll in accelerated online graduate programs where the classes last eight weeks instead of the traditional 15 weeks. It’s the fast track to an MBA in organizational behavior and resource management, or a Master of Science in educational psychology or educational leadership. But if you are looking to earn a bachelor’s degree online, the school offers four options: rehabilitation studies, applied technology and performance improvement, information science, and applied arts and sciences. If you just love to learn or need to fulfill continuing education requirements, The Lifelong Learning and Professional Development Office runs courses online and on campus. You can even sign up for professor-guided trips to visit places like Machu Picchu, Northern Ireland, or New Zealand.

What are the athletic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

The Mean Green golf team has made a name for themselves nationwide. To date they have appeared in a whopping 34 NCAA tournaments and earned 81 tournament championships, 29 conference titles, and four NCAA crowns. The team attracts golfers from far and wide; players on the current roster hail from nearby Texas towns to places like Germany, Mexico, and South Africa. The women’s soccer team has also been on top of its game since day one. This team has not suffered a single losing season in its 21-season history. In fact, these ladies have won 11 conference championships and four NCAA tournament appearances. The long-standing football team played its 1,000th game in late 2014 in the 30,000-seat Apogee Stadium. This stadium, which opened in 2011, was the first newly constructed college football stadium to receive LEED Platinum certification, meaning it’s designed to be highly energy efficient and sustainable. As you can see, “go green” has more than one meaning at UNT!

What are the school's academic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

UNT has made a name for itself among the nation’s most elite research universities. In 2016 the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education classified UNT as one of 115 doctoral universities that have the “highest research activity.” Building on the faculty’s strengths and interests, the university launched four research institutes in 2015. Areas of focus within these institutes include logistics and transportation, bio-based product development, manufacturing and structural material development, and human environmental impacts. Speaking of the environment, three faculty members are sure to make a positive impact with their research in the near future. In 2015 Professors Dane Crossley, Warren Burggren, and Aaron Roberts were awarded $2.7 million by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative to study the effects of oil spills on fish so future scientists can be better prepared to handle oil spills. Students can make their own exciting impacts with UNT’s many student research opportunities. For instance, undergrads can conduct research in areas like environmental chemistry, kinetics, and spectroscopy through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates program in partnership with the chemistry department.
