College of the Atlantic is a private, 4-year institution established in Bar Harbor, Maine. The campus features a variety of facilities unique to the environment, such as the Beech Hill and Peggy Rockefeller Farms. All students enrolling in COA create their own individual Human Ecology degree plans with a small core curriculum in place to build around. Among other notable achievements, COA was the very first college to become carbon neutral.
Built to let you find your own way to your own passion. Wedged between the Atlantic Ocean and a national park, it's the perfect setting for experiential learning. This is a school of Human Ecology, and it's up to the students to make that phrase do work for them.

If this college is anything, it's genuine. From the people to the location, everything about COA is holistic and caring. From the moment I set foot on campus to when I left two days later, I felt like I was home- I was incredibly at peace -and unshakably happy.
