Welcome to the College of Management and Human Service.  The College brings together four traditionally defined schools - the School of Business, the School of Education & Human Development, the School of Social Work, and the Muskie School of Public Service - and aspires to create new opportunities for students to engage in experiential learning, scholarly research, and service to their communities.

The College houses a wealth of both graduate and undergraduate degree programs, as well as teacher education, professional development, and certificate options. Several of the College's programs hold national accreditation and offer programs that may lead to certification, endorsement, or licensure.
