Unity in action

We love exploring the world around us, and our students are no different. Our students are constantly traveling around the state and the country conducting research and fieldwork. Recent expeditions include:

  • Seaweed sampling on Allen Island
  • Bear trapping in central Maine
  • Microplastic researching in the Atlantic Ocean
  • Seedling cultivation and restoration plantings around Maine

Learn more about the work our students and faculty have done around the country.

Unity online

As an online student, your home is your classroom. You will participate in fieldwork and research just like our Flagship campus students do, using your city, base, or backyard as your laboratory.

You are always welcome to visit our Maine campus; otherwise, we encourage studying your community and the environment around you.

 Get started wherever you are. Apply online today.

“People get it: Unity College is solidly rooted in the experience of Maine. The state of Maine has a palpable sense of place and we want students from across the country, and around the world, to share this amazing resource with us.”
