Established in 1898, Husson University is located on 208 spacious acres in Bangor, Maine, USA, an equal distance from Boston, Massachusetts and Quebec, Canada. Bangor is an historic and picturesque small city with one of the lowest crime-rates in the United States. Once considered the lumber capital of the world, today the Queen City of Bangor remains the commercial and social center of the region. The city offers a lively variety of arts, cultural, and outdoor resources, including a 680-acre wildlife habitat and city forest, the beautiful Bangor Waterfront, a brand new convention and event center and arena, Bangor Symphony Orchestra, museums, theaters, great restaurants and shops, and several annual music, art, and film festivals.
Husson University was established with a different mission than most institutes of higher learning. Rather than asking you to fit into a one-size-fits-all model, we encourage you to add your own personality to a campus that values diversity and welcomes international students from all over the world. We believe that your education is individual and unique; you know better than anyone what you want and what you don’t. We’re here to be your partner in creating a college experience that best suits your needs. It’s a philosophy we call “U and Husson.”
This way of thinking is evident in how we’ve structured our curriculum and campus community. We offer 38 degree programs and 10 graduate/professional programs to provide you with the skills necessary for the career path you choose. Our faculty is comprised of passionate, engaging professors who see you as a person with distinctive ideas and goals rather than as a number in a seating chart. Because Husson focuses on experiential learning, you know you will be engaged, encouraged, and active in classes with faculty who want to know what you think and why. A degree from Husson means you are prepared for a professional career in a way that ensures your success anywhere on the planet.
But Husson is not just about academics. Because we know that learning takes place outside of classes too, we offer more than 50 clubs and student organizations and 19 Division III NCAA sports on campus for you to get involved, develop leadership skills and expand your interests.
We are committed to providing a quality education that leads you to a rewarding, professional career, all at a great value. Come see everything Husson University has to offer. After all, we made it just for you.
