About

History

Building upon the traditions of St. Francis College and Westbrook College, the University of New England has grown and evolved for more than a century.

Education

Students at our two beautiful seaside Maine campuses, and in our array of online degree and certificate programs, are supported by our exceptional commitment to experiential, on-site learning; the uncommon research opportunities we offer (especially to undergrads); our dedication to fostering an inclusive, welcoming community; and our belief in the importance of cross-cultural fluency. UNE students study abroad at five times the national average, participating in programs that include partnerships in Spain, France, and Iceland — and our one-of-a-kind jewel of a campus in Tangier, Morocco.

Research

As a student at the University of New England, you'll enjoy a wide range of opportunities to participate in research. Working alone or in a group of peers, you'll engage with faculty at the forefront of their disciplines in the pursuit of new knowledge.
