Academic Programs

At UMaine, we provide a comprehensive academic and student experience, yielding graduates who are well-educated, well-adjusted and well-prepared to assume leadership roles in our society. We foster excellence and innovation through inspired, dedicated teaching and the discovery of new knowledge.

UMaine's offers more than 90 majors and programs are offered by across five colleges the College of Education and Human Development; the College of Engineering; the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture; the Honors College and the Maine Business School. In addition, the Explorations program is designed to help undecided students identify a major from across UMaine's colleges while making progress toward their degree. The Division of Lifelong Learning offers online classes and distance-learning opportunities for students who need a flexible class schedule.

UMaine's Honors College, one of the country's oldest and most prestigious, provides an in-depth, academically challenging curriculum for qualified students in any major. Honors students take advantage of unique research, academic and cultural opportunities, as well as exclusive housing.

All students at the University of Maine benefit from a solid liberal arts foundation. Here, students develop and refine the qualities they need to more fully engage with the world around them critical thinking, curiosity, a sense of discovery, a broader perspective no matter what discipline they choose.

Fogler Library, the state's largest library, houses approximately 1 million volumes, subscribes to more than 4,000 periodicals and serial titles and serves as a depository for more than 2.2 million government documents. In addition, Fogler provides access to countless online documents.

Students Say

The University of Maine is proud to have “one of the top engineering schools in the Northeast!” Students describe the atmosphere as “engineering with a dash of liberal arts,” and also praise the forestry and business programs. However, some point out, “As with many schools focused on funding their science departments, the arts programs tend to suffer and feel like the neglected, malnourished stepchildren.” Yet, the overall consensus is that “UMaine has challenging courses that push students to reach their potential.” Many students say they chose UMaine for its balance of “the friendly, small feeling while still at a state university,” and Maine residents cite the “financially feasible” in-state tuition combined with the fact that “it’s close to home but far enough away and large enough to feel different and exciting” as big selling points. Most agree, “The faculty and administrators take an active interest in the students” and say, “Education is top priority.” Professor reviews offer a mixed bag, with some students saying, “The professors here are open-minded and teach with enthusiasm,” and others finding, “There is the occasional dud professor.” One zoology major sums up the disparity this way: “Professors in the lower-level courses tend to be more focused on lecturing than anything else. As you move up in the course levels, and classes get smaller, the professors tend to pay more attention to class discussion and the opinions of individual students.”

Overall

From The School

In addition to state-of-the-art research and classroom facilities, the University of Maine is also a cultural hub. It is home to the region's premier performing arts center, the Collins Center for the Arts, as well as several museums and galleries. Student Entertainment brings in national acts, such as Janelle Monae, Boys Like Girls and All American Rejects. The New Balance Student Recreation Center is a campus hot spot, and is ranked 7th in Best College Reviews' 25 Most Amazing Campus Student Recreation Centers.

Students can get involved in more than 200 clubs and organizations academic and social including 18 fraternities or 9 sororities, Student Government, community service-oriented groups, intramural sports and much, much more. On campus, there are free events including game nights, first-run movies, open mic nights and karaoke. UMaine is the state's only NCAA Division I school, and athletic events especially hockey are a big part of student life here. In fact, the Wall Street Journal says Alfond Arena has the best atmosphere in college hockey, and Orono is ranked 29 in The Bleacher Report's Top 50 Hockey Cities in North America.

When UMaine students travel, they can easily explore Maine, New England and the east coast or go global, through study abroad, international volunteerism and the worldwide undergraduate research opportunities. In recent semesters, UMaine students have traveled to China to learn more about the country's emerging financial markets, to Italy to explore Renaissance art history at the source, to Turkey to study film and to Brazil to learn about a sensitive and diverse ecosystem.

Students Say

The majority of students here hail from Maine and the Northeast. However, despite a lack of external diversity, students say, “There is a wide range of diversity in thought and belief,” and students say that although “diversity is rare because of the school’s location…it is encouraged and accepted.” Most students agree, “One of the best aspects of UMaine is the camaraderie that everyone has for each other,” and agree, “Students have many opportunities to meet people in and out of class.” In fact, one theater major proclaims, “The majority of the students who attend the University of Maine are either athletes or soon-to-be scientists…however, both groups tend to mix fairly well with each other.” Another student concurs, “I’ve seen former high school jocks socializing with brilliant engineers.” UMaine has a reputation for its lively social life; “there is no denying that most everybody drinks for fun,” students are careful to point out, “The campus is huge, so if partying isn’t your scene it’s easy to find another one.”

Location

The Best Location
There’s no place like Maine, and UMaine students explore the great outdoors whenever they can. There are 15 miles of walking, biking and cross-country skiing trails on campus. Some of the best skiing in the East is located within easy driving distance of campus, as are Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Baxter State Park, the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The Maine Bound adventure center on campus offers a comprehensive outdoor experience for all skill levels. By combining recreation and education, our programs offer adventure opportunities for every lifestyle, instilling safety and survival training. Students can kayak, ski, snowshoe, canoe, hike and even learn about wilderness first aid.

Orono is a classic college town, bounded by the Stillwater and Penobscot rivers, located in the heart of Maine. The University of Maine is 10 minutes from the state's third-largest city, Bangor, and its international airport. UMaine's 660-acre campus was designed by legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Central Park in New York City and the U.S. Capitol grounds in Washington, D.C. It is a traditional New England campus, with ivy-covered brick buildings, towering pines and incredible fall foliage.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

At the University of Maine, undergraduate research is a priority and point of pride. Our students publish, travel and work alongside UMaine's world-class scholars and scientists.

The Center for Undergraduate Research connects students with faculty projects that suit their interests. For many, research provides an opportunity for a mentor-mentee relationship different from — and often richer than — that of teacher-student. Skills developed through research and scholarship make students more competitive in the workplace and in graduate school.

There's a common misconception that if students choose a university rather than a small college, they'll get lost in the shuffle. They'll never see a professor — only teaching assistants — until they’re in grad school. But at the University of Maine, the majority of undergraduate classes are taught by professors — and many of those faculty members go on to become friends and mentors to their students. Here, professors are known for having an open-door policy. Our students have opportunities to work alongside some of the most renowned scholars and scientists in the world — whether they're talking civil engineering over pies at Pat's Pizza or traversing an Antarctic ice sheet with researchers from UMaine's Climate Change Institute.

Off-Campus Opportunities

When our students travel, they don't just go to Boston for the weekend. They go global through study abroad, international volunteerism and the worldwide research opportunities available to undergraduates at UMaine. In the last year alone, our students have traveled to China to learn more about the country's emerging financial markets. To Italy to explore Renaissance art history at the source. To Turkey, to study film and eat really good stuffed mussels. And to Brazil, to learn about a sensitive and diverse ecosystem from one of the world's leading conservation biologists (who just happens to be a UMaine professor).

Student Organizations & Activities

In addition to state-of-the-art research and classroom facilities, the University of Maine is also a cultural hub. It is home to the region's premier performing arts center, the Collins Center for the Arts, as well as several museums and galleries. Student Entertainment brings in national acts, such as Janelle Monae, Boys Like Girls and All American Rejects.

Students Say

Despite the fact that “it can get rather gloomy with the long winters” and “winters are pretty harsh,” UMaine students agree, “The administration, in conjunction with the student government, does whatever they can to make it better.” One business administration major says, “We have a saying: If you’re bored, you’re doing something wrong. There is stuff going on six nights a week, and there is lots to do in the Bangor area. Hiking, dining, arts, sports, anything you need, really.” Most students point to the overall “outdoorsyness” of campus life, saying, “The only thing more plentiful than the friendly people are the deer and the squirrels.” UMaine students “love to use the recreation facilities and explore the great outdoors,” and they’re proud to add, “Our school has a really strong campus culture.” A common sentiment is that “UMaine is a great place to work and play.” One sophomore says, “Hockey is life; the rest is just classes.” The Division I hockey team at UMaine has many shouting, “Go Black Bears!” and all agree that “UMaine Hockey is a huge event for any Maine student.” While some rave about the recently upgraded gym complex, others grumble that some “facilities are old and falling apart,” and some students believe the university should focus on “upgrading outdated classroom buildings in some majors.” The most common complaint about the administration: “They could start by backing off with the parking tickets…It’s crazy.”

Sustainability

The University of Maine has an innovative program to reduce the use of motor vehicles: It provides free bicycles to be used by faculty, staff, and students. Old or abandoned bikes are collected by the UMaine Police Department, refurbished by Maine Bound, and are then available for checkout on a monthly basis. A free shuttle also takes students from campus to downtown Orono. The result? Hundreds of UMaine students biking to class and thousands more using the shuttle to get around town, which equals thousands of fewer car trips each year. The university has a full-time Sustainability Coordinator and a Sustainability Council made up of students, faculty and staff. Under their guidance, the university has made a commitment to avoid sprawl, restore local habitats, and achieve carbon neutrality by 2040. Students have plenty of opportunities to become involved in environmental issues on campus. Eco-Reps in residence halls coordinate recycling programs and lead other environmental initiatives. UMaine’s Advanced Composting Facility converts more than 300,000 pounds of pre- and post-consumer food waste from campus dining facilities annually. By using the compost to grow greens in campus hoop houses, the university is effectively going from plate to plant and back to plate. All new buildings on campus must meet state green building standards and existing buildings are getting a makeover—two have been outfitted recently with industrial-scale solar thermal systems. Motivated students can join one of the many sustainability-based campus groups like “The Green Team,” which promotes sustainability on projects as large as national campaigns and as small as minor changes in campus life. Faculty and students research sustainable energy, including cellulosic ethanol, wind, and tidal power (with help from a $300,000 Green Loan Fund supported by the University of Maine Foundation).
