From Husson University

Husson (“huh-son”) University is a small, private, nonprofit institution located in Bangor, Maine. We’re known for our safe, close-knit campus, as well as our specialized learning spaces where students learn hands on, turning classroom theory into practice.

We offer 60+ undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in business, communications, counseling, criminal justice, education, health, pharmacy, science & humanities and technology.

Internships & clinicals are an important part of a Husson education, and in some programs, are built into the curriculum. The majority of our students participate in at least one internship or clinical before they graduate.

With an average class size of 18, you’ll get more personal attention from faculty. They’ll get to know you & your career goals and give you guidance on how to achieve them.

Approximately 96% of our students are employed or in grad school within 1 year of graduation – proof that an education from Husson is a smart investment.
