The University of North Texas is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters and doctorate degrees.
The Biological Sciences Department is the best there is as far as what north Texas has to offer. The timetables are structured and classrooms do not change by the day, it helps that these schedules are predictable. However, do be warned that the buildings are far apart so there will be lots of walking, parking can be a hassle in the mornings, and cleanliness of the grounds...
So glad I chose UNT. Great school and some really great professors. Because UNT is so big, it can be hard to make friends out on your own, so join a club.They have many to choose from and you will make great friends!
The campus itself feels like a community, everyone I have met from students to professors have been vary supportive of the choices that I have made in my college life. I have struggled, but in a good way with the classes and instructors pushing me to work harder and improve myself.
