Why Study Biology at UMM?

Nothing looks better on a résumé than practical experience. Biology majors at UMM enjoy hands-on experiences throughout the curriculum. In addition, you will have opportunities to participate in an internship for career-oriented experience, and to work one-on-one with one of our dedicated instructors on a senior thesis project or an independent study.

Pine forests, ocean waters, unspoiled rivers and streams-Downeast Maine’s stunning natural resources are like a second classroom for UMM students. It’s an ideal location for a naturalist and you will graduate with a solid undergraduate education that enables you to pursue professional employment or further your education.
