Husson University

Husson is a University of choice for premier professional programs where students succeed, experiential learning is championed and global engagement is emphasized.



Since 1898, Husson has been educating Maine's leaders. Originally preparing students for commerce, teaching and telegraphy, Husson came of age in 1953, when the State enacted legislation authorizing Husson to grant Bachelor of Science degrees. In the sixties, Husson purchased a dairy farm, cleaned it up, and built a beautiful campus. In 1981, the College established the Husson College/Eastern Maine Medical Center


The Husson Unversity achieves the career preparation by supporting and emphasizing

  • Outstanding teaching.
  • Scholarly contributions to one's discipline or field of expertise.
  • An undergraduate and graduate curriculum that is challenging, relevant, and promotes critical thinking skills, self-confidence and strong communication skills.
  • Commitment to ethical behavior and social responsibility through involvement in the world by faculty and students, administrators and staff, board members, and involved citizenship as a university.
  • Lifelong learning to prepare students professionally and personally for the challenges of a constantly changing world.


Husson University, a private institution of higher education in Bangor, Maine, recognizes the importance of faculty and student scholarship in the life of the institution. These activities are facilitated by the Office of Research and Scholarship which provides a number of services and functions for the university community.

One of the functions of the Office is the organization and support of the Annual Student Research and Scholarship Day to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Undergraduate and graduate students present posters describing their work, along with other activities to highlight the diverse array of scholarly activity undertaken by these students.


Husson Career Services helps students and alumni make informed career decisions, connect with employers, pursue further education, and develop their professional lives and goals. We do this through providing guidance on careers, majors, internships, job search, graduate school advising, using social media, and much more.
