Husson University was founded in Maine in 1898 and today includes the schools of Business; Education; Health; Science and Humanities; a proposed School of Law and an emerging School of Pharmacy, as well as a separately accredited professional technology program, The New England School of Communications (NESCom), and an Extended Learning Division offering graduate and undergraduate degrees at five different locations.

Husson offers associate, baccalaureate, masters and professional doctoral degrees that lead to licensure and careers in a variety of fields. Most of Husson’s programs involve hands-on learning both on and off campus and at clinical sites. Evening and weekend on-line studies, off-campus sites and individualized programs serve some 3,000 traditional and non-traditional students. Traditional undergraduate enrollments have doubled since 2000; graduate enrollments show a steady increase as new programs emerge and the University continues to respond to market demand. A member of the NCAA Division lll, the university offers 11 varsity sports and supports a range of intramural teams.

The University is comprised of a comprehensive, residential 200-acre campus in Bangor, a 700-acre forest, and off-campus satellite education centers in Presque Isle, Calais, Portland and Eastport, Maine. The Bangor Theological Seminary and the Bangor Symphony Orchestra are independent entities located on the Bangor campus.
