Begin the journey to a new career in Washington County through our Psychology & Community Studies program! Here is a testimonial from a local employer:
"Over the past year, the Department of Health and Human Services, Machias, Maine has hired seven graduates from University of Maine, Machias, all of whom were very well prepared and eager to proceed in learning the skills of becoming a productive, successful Human Services Caseworker. Their creative professionalism and personal skill has been very welcomed by the Office of Child and Family Services. Human Services Caseworkers need many skills. Caseworkers need to be eager to learn, adapt to change, be flexible, organized, supportive, open minded, articulate-both verbal and written, a team player, and more to ensure child safety and well being. The alumni hired from University of Maine, Machias had the entry level prerequisites to begin the continued learning journey to develop into competent caseworkers and to assist the families in Washington County to safely care for their children."
