UNT continues to be a leader in distance learning and making education more accessible to working professionals. UNT's new accelerated online program offers the opportunity to earn master's degrees or academic certificates fully online in eight-week sessions, and students can join or re-join the curriculum in any session. The programs are currently being offered to students pursuing master's degrees in the College of Information and College of Education. A pilot program for a master's degree in learning technologies launched this fall. In January, UNT began offering a master's degree in educational leadership. More will be offered in the future.
