UMaine Early College offers new Climate Change Pathway to high school students

University of Maine Early College has partnered with the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture to develop a Climate Change Online Career Pathway. The 15-credit Pathway consists of a set of core courses (nine credits) in geology, economics and English, and six credits of recommended electives.

Climate Change joins a portfolio of 30 pathways offered through UMaine and UMaine Machias Early College. Designed to introduce high school students to higher education and careers of interest, Early College Pathways allow students to make progress toward a UMaine degree through a chosen selection of courses.

Through a partnership with the University of Maine System and the Maine Department of Education, with support from the Maine State Legislature, Early College courses are tuition-free for Maine public high school students.

Students and parents interested in UMaine’s Early College Climate Change Pathway should contact Kari Suderley, 581.8024, or visit for more information.
