At the University of Southern Maine (USM), our graduate students benefit from a small, close-knit environment, working closely with faculty who have deep community connections in research, scholarship, and professional practice. Challenges faced by healthcare, business, public policy, education, and cultural organizations are the best platform for real-world learning opportunities that can also generate solutions.

We’re located in the economic and cultural hub of Maine, but also near year-round activities, providing a wonderful balance of education and living.
