About UNE

We are creating the future.

UNE is leading the transformation of global health sciences education. Beyond mere "training," we provide a full and integrated education preparing our graduates for evolving health care professions.

In addition to our 27 health sciences disciplines, the full range of liberal arts classes and majors makes UNE a unique participatory, educational environment. No matter what degree or profession you are pursuing, the interdisciplinary learning turns out scholars and professionals who can adapt and prosper.

In Dental Medicine, Pharmacy, Medicine, Nursing and 11 allied health programs, UNE prepares future health care professionals to practice comprehensive and collaborative team-based care—the new gold standard.

We have three beautiful campuses: in Portland and Biddeford, Maine, and in Tangier, Morocco. This newest campus in Tangier allows UNE students to experience the world while staying on track for their majors. It gives our future professionals a unique understanding of the world they will lead.
