The University of Southern Maine is located in Portland, with campuses in Gorham & Lewiston, and is home to 8,000+ undergraduate, graduate, and law school students from 43 states and 18 countries. USM provides connections with what you're learning in the classroom to what's happening in communities across Maine and the Nation. Academic strength begins in the classroom and flourishes through immersive, real-world learning experiences that take place in the form of internships, service learning, and research projects. Our low student-to-faculty classroom ratio gives you the opportunity to forge strong connections with our accomplished faculty—many of whom hold degrees from distinguished universities from across the U.S., with Fulbright and Guggenheim Fellows among them. These exceptional educators often use their own connections to help you create partnerships in the community that can reinforce your classroom learning and give you a leg up when launching your career.
