A metropolitan area offers a wealth of job opportunities, plus entertainment, culture, shopping and professional sports. A college town offers a peaceful haven for study and research. UNT has the advantages of both. The university is located in Denton, a town of about 115,000 people only 35 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan area.
UNT’s proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth makes it possible for graduate students to intern with top corporations, government agencies and other institutions. UNT’s nationally accredited Cooperative Education and Internships office helps students find internship and practicum experiences that provide valuable training and often lead to job offers following graduation. Many companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth region know the quality of our programs. UNT students and graduates work at firms such as American Airlines, EDS, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Federal Express, Fidelity, Frito-Lay, JCPenney, Southwest Airlines, Target and Texas Instruments.

The university’s Career Center provides advising, job fairs, on-campus interviews with outside companies and other placement services. Faculty and academic departments also play a key role in placing graduate students.
