海边校园

我们的 海洋科学项目 吸引很多人的注意, with good reason: our shoreline location — where the mouth of the Saco River meets the Gulf of Maine (the fastest warming body of ocean water in the world) — makes UNE an ideal spot for studying a variety of marine environments and species.

作为一个 环境科学专业, you can examine the ecology of the tidal marshes in our own backyard. Biddeford Pool is the largest tidal pool in Maine and is great for observing coastal wildlife.
