From University of Maine at Machias

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.
