UMA’s Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) program offers the only professional architecture degree in Maine and the only public 5-year professional degree in northern New England.

Our mission expresses who we are: SMALL… INTEGRATED… HANDS-ON. This fundamentally means we are about people: our students, our faculty, and our community partners. We teach architecture through engagement, educating, and empowering students to explore, investigate, and analyze the built environment. Engagement brings students into active contact with each other, their coursework, and our community partners.

Who We Are

The University of Maine at Augusta’s Architecture program is rooted in three essential elements.  The first is the mission to engage community; this is where our work takes place. The second is the desire to work in collaboration, both within and without the university; this is what allows us to affect positive change.  And third is seen in our curriculum, based in the idea of being “grounded in real”; these are the tools we use to affect our collective built environment.

Some of my favorite memories of the program were the real life learning experiences  – making models, working in the wood shop, visiting job sites and firms, interacting with architects and community members.  You come out of the program with valuable skills, and an appreciation for the opportunity we have to make a real impact through design.
