The mission of the Global Education Program is to foster global citizenship by providing the opportunity for all UNE students to study abroad for a semester or during breaks.
Our program enables you to choose from courses in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, business and the arts. The courses are taught in English, but you are also encouraged to study Arabic, Spanish or French. Our offerings include the lab science courses needed to complete many of the undergraduate programs at UNE. Through the Global Education Program, you gain a global perspective without experiencing any delay in the curriculum required for your major.
The UNE campus in Tangier allows you to sign up for your regular curriculum while discovering the culture of Morocco and the city of Tangier at no additional cost.
Spend a semester abroad in beautiful Seville, Spain for the same cost as a semester on campus in Maine.
Faculty-led short term travel courses are another way to study abroad. You meet with faculty throughout the semester to prepare for travel through readings, lectures and coursework. Then you travel to destinations in Africa, Europe, and Central and South America during a semester break or over the summer.
