Why Choose to Study Psychology in Maine?

The coastal front of Maine may offer a variety of outdoor recreational activities, but the higher educational opportunities are what make the state so attractive to psychology professionals and students. With four key metropolitan areas, job opportunities grow naturally out of the time spent in a classroom.

Educational Programs and Specialities

Bangor, Lewiston, Portland, and Augusta, are the main metropolitan centers. There, you can find accredited psychology programs as well as job opportunities. The degree plans here are mostly for bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

The University of Maine in Orono also includes doctorate programs in education, philosophy in psychology, counseling, developmental psychology, and social psychology, to name a few. Many students take on undergraduate work at one of the other dozen psychology schools in Maine and transfer to the University of Maine to finish up.

Job Prospects in Maine for Psychology Professionals

For being so small, Maine values its psychologists highly. The annual median wage is a respectable $72,000 per year, and the cost of living, even in metropolitan centers, is much lower than what one might experience in other parts of the northeastern United States.
