About UMF

Despite being a public state university with a state university price tag, University of Maine Farmington is more like a private, liberal arts college. With its historical New England campus, its small student body and its mission of cultivating independent thinking among its students, there’s a lot to love about the Farmington location.

University of Maine students tend to be creative, but are also strong in academics. They might major in:

  • Art
  • Creative Writing
  • Interactive Media
  • Theatre
  • Business Economics
  • Geography
  • Philosophy/Religion
  • Special Education

No matter what a student’s major is, at Farmington they are encouraged to think independently through in-class discussions, which are taught by friendly professors whom students call by their first names.

Many of Farmington’s course titles are evidence of the creative approaches that the school honors. Some examples of some of Farmington’s more creative classes include:

  • Earth, Sky and Native Culture
