The University of Maine at Farmington offers a number of real-world, hands-on learning opportunities to help you connect your classroom studies to what may be your future work. In fact many of our academic programs actually require students to participate in an internship or internship-like activity (teaching practicum and student-teaching, paid research, for instance).

At Farmington, you Learn by Doing

Hands-on learning is ingrained in our academic curriculum and has long been a part of our campus culture. In any given semester, about 70% of all Farmington students are involved in some sort of experiential learning activity: internships, student teaching and practicums, service-learning, volunteer projects, funded research, leadership activities and more.

UMF Outdoor Recreation Business Administration (ORBA) major Charles Katz recently participated in a paid internship at Maine’s Saddleback Ski Resort as part of his Resort Management course where he learned the ropes of being a member of the Ski Patrol team. Saddleback Ski Area is located just an hour from campus. He self-produced this video as part of his final project.
