The University of North Texas (UNT), based in Denton, is a public institution of higher education and research committed to a wide array of sciences, engineering fields, liberal arts, fine arts, performing arts, public policy, and graduate professional education. Ten colleges, two schools, an early admissions math and science academy for exceptional high-school-age students from across the state, and a library system comprise the university. Its research is driven by nearly 50 doctoral degree programs. The university set a 2012–2013 budget of $870 million, of which $30 million was allocated for research. North Texas was founded as a nonsectarian, coeducational, private teachers college in 1890 and adopted by the State in 1901.
