About our Psychology Programs

Common to all of our Psychology programs is a study of the behavior and mental processes of humans and animals. We invite you to use the tabs above or the links below to visit each of our five programs to learn about what you can do at UNE. You can also visit our blog to read about the recent activities and accomplishments of our students and faculty.

The best thing about the Animal Behavior major is what you learn. Since animals can't tell us how they feel/what they think, we have to find other ways to discover that.

One-of-a-Kind Location

As a student in one of our Psychology 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 of delicious eateries, events, and more. With the development of the old Biddeford/Saco mills into restaurants, breweries, housing, fitness facilities such as yoga studios, 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.
