Welcome to the home of the liberal arts at UNE! In the College of Arts and Sciences, we are transforming passions into professions on the beautiful coast of Maine. UNE’s roots are founded in the liberal-arts education provided by St. Francis College here on the shores of the Saco Estuary in Biddeford, Maine. Today, the College of Arts and Sciences offers more than 40 major programs in the arts, social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, business and education. We also deliver the bulk of the University's undergraduate core curriculum to all bachelor's degree-seeking students.
I invite you to browse the department websites for the many fascinating opportunities you'll find. Whether you're interested in chemical laboratory research, studying ocean policy, preparing for a career in medicine, learning about national and world politics, or anything in between, UNE's College of Arts and Sciences has a place for you. At UNE, we are all focused on innovation for a healthier planet. The College of Arts and Sciences can be your first step towards becoming part of this exciting mission.
