UMA offers Bachelor and select Associate programs taught by professors who combine academic credentials with real-world experience. UMA students can take our courses in Augusta, at the Bangor Campus, and across the state at Centers and through e-learning technologies. UMA programs prepare students for professional careers, while at the same time providing a common liberal arts core essential for career mobility.
With full-service campuses in Maine's state capital of Augusta and in Bangor, and with University College centers around the state, UMA is considered the university of choice for Mainers who want to receive a quality and affordable education without uprooting their lives.
Enrollment has been climbing steadily since 2008 as UMA continues its transition to a fully baccalaureate institution with select associate degree programs.
