Situated among the rivers, forests and rugged Atlantic coastline of Down East Maine, the University of Maine at Machias is an affordable liberal arts college in a close-knit rural community. Our students develop a sense of authentic connection from learning in an intimate, small campus environment — while enjoying the low tuition rates found at a large public university.
UMM offers the best of both worlds. Our students learn in state-of-the-art biology labs — and they pull on rubber boots to study marine organisms in the mud. They analyze the literary classics — and they draw, write and print their own graphic novels. They gain marketable job skills by working in the field alongside community members and partner organizations — and they develop close relationships with faculty who will advocate for their education every step of the way.
