The programs in the Department of History and Philosophy are focused on the exploration and understanding of human existence. We explore the past and the present and consider what the future might hold. As a student of these disciplines, you develop skills in clear thinking, effective argumentation, cogent interpretation, and persuasive written and spoken communication.
As a student in one of our Department of History and Philosophy programs, you study on UNE's scenic Biddeford Campus, where the waters of the Saco River flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years, this confluence of natural resources has inspired students and faculty from around the world.
Recently named the youngest city in Maine, Biddeford and its twin city, Saco, boast an up-and-coming, hip downtown offering delicious eateries, exciting social and cultural events, and more. With the transformation of the old Biddeford/Saco mills into restaurants, breweries, housing, fitness facilities, salons, and retailers, there is something for everyone to explore in downtown. Looking to try a new type of food, grab a coffee, or shop for locally-made clothes? Biddeford/Saco has it all.
