Graduate work has been available at the University of Maine since the first master's degree was conferred here in 1881. Since that time, graduate offerings have expanded significantly to include our current selection of over 70 master's and 30 doctoral areas of study.
Beginning in 1923, graduate work has been a separate division of the University. This differentiation allows the Graduate School to meet the unique needs of the 2300-plus graduate students currently enrolled at the Orono campus on both academic and personal matters. We encourage you to contact our office (located on the lower level of Stodder Hall) at anytime, for information or materials related to graduate studies at the University of Maine.
