Take the first step toward the career you have always wanted with a master's degree from the University of North Texas. As the largest, most comprehensive university in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, UNT has the advanced degree that will shape your future.

In addition to the personal growth it offers you, a graduate degree can expand your career opportunities and your income. Employees with a master's degree earn on average $12,000 a year more than those with only a bachelor's degree.
