A career in the marine sciences starts with an education that puts you in the water. Marine programs at UNE offer constant hands-on interaction in a variety of marine environments and state-of-the-art research facilities. All of our programs emphasize the importance of internships, field research, and experiential learning, so you don't just learn marine science — you do marine science.
As a student in one of our Marine 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.
