Academics - Natural Sciences, Forestry and Agriculture
It’s one thing to learn about the natural world in a classroom. It’s another thing entirely to learn about it in this classroom. At the University of Maine, woods, lakes, rivers and streams surround our campus. The Atlantic Ocean and the Appalachian Trail are in our back yard. But at UMaine, the great indoors is equally impressive. The College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture offers a wide variety of lab-intensive majors and state-of-the-art teaching facilities. The region’s largest hospital and leading research institutes are also nearby. Because of UMaine’s location, reputation and facilities, some of the world’s top scientists, scholars and researchers — people who could go anywhere — choose to come here.
