The University of Southern Maine is a public institution with multiple campuses found throughout the state, including in Portland, Lewiston, and Gorham. It is one of two universities in Maine that offers an ABET accredited Computer Science degree program. Nursing, business administration and management, and intervention and treatment professions are the most popular majors among undergraduates. USM offers a study abroad program with Reykjavik University and University of Iceland to research dwindling wildlife population and environmental health.
The university of Southern Maine is a good state university for people who know what they want to major in. They offer a large variety of majors and classes but the advisors don't always help you the way they should. Overall it is a fun school for all ages.

usm is a great school that is often taken for granted. there are tons of opportunities available once you become involved in the community. usm is also known to have some of the best programs around, in certain majors.
