UNT featured in nationwide "See Yourself in Frisco" campaign

UNT's presence in Frisco continues to grow. One of UNT’s partners, the Frisco Economic Development Corporation, recently featured UNT President Neal Smatresk in its national "See Yourself in Frisco" campaign, which includes advertisements in The Wall Street Journal. And the number of degree programs available is rapidly expanding. This year, we'll begin offering a three-year accelerated degree in Project Design and Analysis that enables UNT at Frisco students to participate in meaningful, project-based learning with local businesses, agencies and community partners.

Through palaeoproteomics, the study of ancient proteins, we can now look back over a million years,” said Ferring.
