One of the greatest things about UNE is the large variety of different experiential learning opportunities.

I came to UNE because of the Animal behavior major. It’s not very common. Most colleges have things like zoology or biology, but I wanted to zone in more on animal behavior.

One thing I really appreciate about UNE is just how close and personal the professors are.

Because I've gotten that education at UNE, I know a lot of stuff about the animals that people might overlook.

My background at UNE has given me a strong foundation for career success.

Business Administration, Psychology

I wouldn’t be on the track I am — on the career path I’m on — if I hadn’t gotten involved in undergraduate research.

The skills I learned at UNE have been invaluable to me as I pursue my Ph.D. in School Psychology...My background in research and experiences in schools allowed me to hit the ground running.

Tom Cook

If I hadn’t had the internship experiences I had at UNE, I would not hold my current position...they were able to hire me because of my education versus the years of service. Education is everything.

Benjamin Katz

The department’s biggest strength is without a doubt the faculty members. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable in their areas of expertise, their approachability in class and during office hours helped facilitate my learning.

Josh Carbonell

The faculty are all so passionate...that made it easy to be invested in the classroom experience.

Philosophy, Psychology

UNE offers a lot of hands-on experience — there is a focus on internships. Professors want you to do more than one because they want you to have the hands-on experience to figure out exactly what you’re interested in.

I am able to already hone in on what I want to do later on down the line by studying neuroscience and the brain. Being more specialized now, focusing on the brain and neuroscience, will help me later on in my work.

Mackenzie Deveau

Everything that I studied came together in a perfect funnel — that’s exactly what college should do. It’s a real, true liberal arts experience.

Being in a place that’s growing, improving, and on a mission to get better is inspiring.

Working in the research setting taught me how to think critically and how to apply all the theories and knowledge learned in class to the real world.

What I like most about being a Neuroscience major is all the different courses I am able to take. I have the opportunity to take psychology, biology, and chemistry courses, in addition to the core neuroscience courses.

When the new Neuroscience major was developed, I was immediately interested. This program is the perfect fit for me.

[Working as a lab assistant] allowed me to combine all of my lab research, work semi-independently within a laboratory setting, and explore one of my own interests while still furthering the research of the lab.

[The Neuroscience] program stuck out to me because it offered unique experience on the cutting edge in the classroom and in the laboratory.

One of the reasons I love my major so much is because all my professors have brought their real life experiences into each of their classes, which shows the students how much they love their work and want to share their experiences with the students.

My animal behavior background has provided a useful baseline of knowledge for my continued education. Specifically, as an animal behavior major, I learned to think about animals in a way that many other people will never see them.

Though the ANB major, I learned about different types of training, the physiology of the brain, and read numerous behavioral studies that allowed me to learn from experiments that already occurred.
