USM College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences
Welcome to the USM College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (formerly the College of Arts and Sciences). We invite your appropriate comments.
Welcome to the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Southern Maine.
Our strong liberal and fine arts programs provide the heart and soul of the undergraduate experience at the University of Southern Maine. As a whole, we are dedicated to providing the best comprehensive education possible to our students while providing a learning environment that cultivates independent thought.
We strive to provide our graduates with the critical thinking and analytical skills they will need to succeed after graduation. We encourage our students to take courses in departments outside of their major to better prepare them for their chosen career path. We offer a transformative curriculum that ranges from exploring the theoretical frameworks that shape the social sciences to music performance and web design.
Students in our programs are given the opportunity to build skills and portfolios through international travel opportunities, internships, and service learning projects in the community. Our goal is to educate our students to be global citizens with the capability to lead through understanding and compassion.
The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Dean’s Office is located at 228 Deering Avenue on the Portland campus of USM. Students are always welcome to stop by to voice concerns or seek advice. We are here to make sure you have the best possible experience.
