Education that goes beyond training, the classroom, your comfort zone and other universities—that’s the UNE way.
UNE professors include world-class researchers, authors and Fulbright scholars. You’ll get to know them personally, working side-by-side with them in the lab, on a research vessel, in the field, or across the globe.
Innovation isn’t just a word to UNE, it’s our reason for being. Our DNA is innovating in health sciences and liberal arts, with more than 40 undergraduate and 32 graduate/professional programs in important, needed and fascinating fields. Whatever path you choose, you’ll make important connections and experience life-changing internships that position you for success.
We don’t just educate students, we make them valuable contributors to the world, recognized everywhere. 90 percent of UNE’s 2012 Class is either employed or pursuing graduate/professional school. Forbes lists UNE among its 2014 America's Top Colleges and U.S. News & World Report ranks us one of the "Best Universities" in the North.
