About our global opportunities

As advances in travel and connectivity have rendered many traditional borders obsolete, professionals in a variety of fields have needed to approach their work from a global perspective. UNE has been at the forefront of designing academic programs that empower you to capitalize on the new opportunities of this rapidly changing world.

As an undergraduate, for the same cost as studying in Maine, you can spend a semester in Tangier, Morocco or Seville, Spain. Our campus in Tangier sits at the crossroads of civilizations, where languages, cultures and religions coexist, offering an ideal place to examine global concerns like the relationship between Islam and the West, immigration, human rights and women’s rights. In Morocco and Spain you can complete required lab science and humanities courses, allowing you to stay on track for graduation while gaining international experience. You also may participate in shorter faculty-led travel courses that visit the places around the globe where the knowledge you’re gaining in your discipline takes on special meaning.  

As a UNE graduate student, you enjoy your own opportunities for short-term study abroad, such as two-week health care immersions in Ghana that integrate western health practices with folk medicine, summer exchanges for pharmacy students at the University of Granada in Spain, and social work trips to countries across the Caribbean.

By the time you graduate, you possess a global worldview and the skills necessary to succeed in a multitude of cultural settings.
