Planning for Law or graduate school?
You could save time and money in earning your Law degree or MSW. We offer Accelerated Graduate Pathways to the University of Maine School of Law and to our Master of Social Work program.
Prepare for a career in social service or research, such as an advocate for survivors of domestic abuse, substance abuse counselor, juvenile court worker, affirmative action worker, or urban planner. Our program will also prepare you for professional or graduate studies in fields such as Sociology, Social Work, or Law.
Study the relationship between individual experience and broader social forces. Understand the role of social structures in the creation — and dismantling — of class, race, sexuality, and gender inequalities.
Scholarships offer valuable financial aid that doesn’t need to be repaid. You’ll be automatically considered for Merit Scholarships when you apply for admission by the deadline. Additional opportunities are available.
