All of our students have extensive opportunities for hands-on research within and outside the classroom, and there are a number of internships and summer jobs on campus, in local communities, or beyond.  If you really want to get hands-on preparation for a career in biology, environmental sciences, or agricultural sciences, UMPI will get you there!

If you have more questions about any of these programs, please contact the Admissions Office or Dr. Jason C. Johnston, Associate Professor of Wildlife Ecology, jason.johnston@maine.edu or 207-768-9652
