Academics - Liberal Arts and Sciences
Every University of Maine degree is built on a solid foundation of courses in the liberal arts and sciences, which is why the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is so central to the UMaine experience. 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.
Alumni Success Stories
"UMaine has caring and dedicated professors who make good role models for quality teaching. I was a lost soul that found direction and guidance at UMaine. When I work with student teachers from other schools, including Columbia University’s Teachers College, they do not feel nearly as prepared as I did after being trained at UMaine."
Student Success Stories
