The University of New England prepares students to thrive in a rapidly changing world and, in so doing, empowers them to improve the health of people, communities, and our planet. Our expansive, holistic vision of a healthier world goes beyond physical well-being. It encompasses emotional and intellectual fulfillment — as well as economic opportunity — for individuals, prosperous and supportive communities, and cooperative environmental stewardship across the globe. Bringing that vision to life requires the deep involvement of all of our programs, often working in novel cross-disciplinary combinations, including the natural and social sciences, the humanities and the arts, business, and policy — as well as the health professions. As Maine’s leading provider of health professionals, we build on a legacy of top-ranked health professions programs (including Maine’s only medical college and physician assistant program, and Northern New England’s only dental college) and our national leadership in interprofessional health care education.

UNE is primarily known for its Medical and Marine Biology programs. That being said, while the Psychology degree is versatile, if you are looking for a wide range of psychology classes, maybe consider a larger diversity more focused on the social sciences...

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is not a very wide selection of Psychology classes.

UNE is a great school, full of passionate students and professors. The natural landscape is used in a lot of core classes, and enriches the college experience!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school as a whole is pricey. Some of the professors make assumptions about what you already do/should know, which can be tough. Hard grading.

Everyone is social and it is a very great tight-knit family of students on campus. Everyone knows everyone and we all look out for each other. The university prioritizes academics over everything and there are so many great opportunities for everything from research to internships to accomplishing the requirements to get a minor.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is expensive, many would say that the president does not care about what is best for the student body, only what is best for how the school looks to others. There is a lack of healthy food options in the dining hall, everything seems to be either a carb or fried or sugary. And when I do go to get a salad at the salad bar, snails are found on the spinach and the lettuce is brown.

The campus and the tight-knit community.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

No healthy food options in the dining hall. The president does what is best in order to make the school look better not what is best for the student body.



I really love the strong sense of community at the University of New England

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are certain formalities that were not enjoyable but nothing that was easy to overlook.
