Liberal Studies

Associate’s Degree

University of Maine at Augusta

UMA’s Associate degree in Liberal Studies is designed to allow you to explore your educational options and prepare you for baccalaureate work. Comparable to the first half of most traditional bachelor’s degree programs, Liberal Studies gives you the basics of a well-rounded education, and offers a rigorous traditional curriculum.

Within the Liberal Studies program, UMA offers tracks for students who are preparing for admissions into the Architectural Program, Medical Laboratory Technology, Nursing, Dental Health, and Veterinary Technology. Agreements are also in place between UMA, UMPI, and UMM so that Liberal Studies students can complete many of the courses they need to earn a degree in Elementary Education or Special Education. Students interested in Secondary Education can complete many of the state Department of Education requirements through UMA.
