From the School

Welcome to Husson University where, for more than 100 years, we have been preparing leaders for the challenges confronting today's global economy. As a university we offer high quality undergraduate and graduate degrees on our Bangor campus and off campus satellite education centers in Presque Isle and South Portland, Maine. Our programs involve hands-on-learning on and off campus. From clinical hospital and pharmacy settings to business opportunities our students develop skills that allow them to transition from the classroom to the work world. Husson's New England School of Communications also serves the needs of professionals for training. Evening and online studies, our off campus sites and individualized programs also serve adult learners. The lives and careers of our 20,000 alumni are a testimony to our success.
