College of Science and Humanities

BANGOR, MAINE – October 12, 2016 – 

WHAT: On August 1, Husson University’s School of Science and Humanities officially changed its name to the College of Science and Humanities. This new name more accurately reflects the breadth and depth of academic programs available to students as well as the bulk of the university’s general education and professional school prerequisite courses provided by the college. Completion of these prerequisite courses is required of all students at Husson University.

 In recognition of the thousands of hours required by College of Science and Humanities full-time faculty and staff members to make this restructuring possible, Husson will be hosting an unveiling ceremony for the College’s new name.

Academic programs represented at this ceremony will include:

  • Biology
  • Biochemistry
  • Data Analytics
  • English – with both traditional and pre-law track options
  • Environmental Science
  • Exercise Science
  • Health Science – with both pre-pharmacy and pre-professional tracks
  • Healthcare Studies
  • Liberal Studies
  • Psychology

Biochemistry, exercise science, and data analytics are all new programs that Husson University’s College of Science and Humanities began offering for the first time this fall.

WHO: Featured presenters at the event will include, Dr. Robert A. Clark, president of Husson University and Dr. Patricia Bixel, dean of the College of Science and Humanities. Dr. Lynne Coy-Ogan, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost may also say a few words.

College of Science and Humanities students, faculty and staff will all be attendance.

WHEN: Thursday, October 20, 2016, 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: Darling Atrium (lobby area outside of the Gracie Theatre entrance)
                Beardsley Meeting House
                Husson University
                1 College Circle

WHY:   The tremendous growth of the university and the scope of work done by Science and Humanities led to this name change. Today, the College of Science and Humanities is an organization that encompasses a diverse series of programs and provides students with the foundational knowledge they need to achieve career success.
