UMaine’s History program enhances individuals’ understanding of themselves and the contemporary world by expanding their experience to include the experiences of other peoples, both past and present.

History is an ideal pre-law major.

AA in Liberal Studies to BA in Political Science

The Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, available on-campus or fully online, examines the nature of politics from diverse perspectives. Students are taught to think critically about the fundamental theories, principles, institutions, and practices of politics in their social and historical contexts. Course work allows students to explore the four main sub-fields of the discipline of political science — American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Political Theory — so that students will acquire knowledge and skills for further study in law school or graduate school, or will be prepared for careers in public service or related fields.

UMS/MECC General Education Block Transfer

The Transfer Block is a defined set of general education requirements that transfer into all University of Maine System (UMS) and Maine Community College (MECC) System institutions. Students who complete all the requirements of the Transfer Block will have completed the bulk of their general education requirements at all of Maine’s public institutions. Maine’s universities may require up to additional 11 credits of general education credits specific to their program, or to a specific bachelor’s degree.   Completing the Transfer Block, however, does not guarantee admission to a particular university.  For questions about the Transfer Block check with your CMCC academic adviser.

Reverse Transfer

CMCC students who decide to transfer to UMaine before completing their Associate’s degree may be able to transfer courses from UMaine back to CMCC to complete and earn their Associate’s degree from CMCC.  Students interested in a reverse transfer should contact their CMCC adviser for more information.

Please note: These agreements are frequently renewed and may at times be under renewal.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Elizabeth Oken, Director of Placement & Transfer Services at CMCC. 207.755.5239, eoken@cmcc.edu or the UMaine Admissions Office.
