Welcome to the University of Maine at Machias! We’re located on the Bold Coast between the Gulf of Maine and the Bay of Fundy. We value diverse learners and have a strong commitment to community engagement and excellence in teaching, mentoring and research.
We pride ourselves on being a teaching-focused campus where students learn and connect by working in the field with local community partners. With the guidance of our dedicated faculty, our students are given countless opportunities for education through experience - whether they’re conducting research in nearby waterways, teaching in local grade schools, volunteering with area nonprofits and businesses or solving problems together in the classroom.
As a regional campus of the University of Maine, our state’s land-grant university, we offer our students the benefit of a unique multi-campus partnership offering a broad variety of degree pathways.
Our graduates have successfully pursued careers as educators, marine biologists, ecologists, conservation officers, artists, business owners, outdoor leaders, counselors - and many others. We believe in preparing our graduates for the future by arming them with a broad base of knowledge and many hours of specialized experience in their chosen fields of study.
We’d love to hear from you to answer any questions, address your concerns, or receive any feedback you might have about the University of Maine at Machias.
