The University of North Texas is a public research university in Denton, Texas. Until 1988, it was known as North Texas State University. It consists of 14 colleges and schools,[1] an early admissions math and science academy, Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science,[2] for exceptional high-school-age students from across the state, and a library system that comprises the university core.
