- COA is a small school, but with a major difference - literally. All students major in Human Ecology, the study of our relationship with our environment. This major gives you the flexibility to design your own course of study. It's all about creativity, investigation, engagement, and community.
- Living on the COA campus isn't quite like living on a normal college campus. First of all, you can't get lost, and it only takes about five minutes to get from one end to the other. The COA campus is also located in a great spot, right on Frenchman Bay, with a pier to swim off, and plenty of quiet spots to get away from it all. Acadia National Park is also within walking distance, with many miles of hikes, carriage trails, mountains, forest, and rocky shoreline to explore and enjoy. The park is also home to many different kinds of wildlife, including eagles, fox, osprey, mink, otters, deer, moose, and more.
- Ultimately, our mission is not only to understand our relationships with our environment, but also to do something to improve them. A degree in Human Ecology enables you to make a difference in your own way, whether you love science or the arts, education, public policy, or any other field.
- There are also several student-staffed computer labs, a computer graphics/design studio, a geographic information systems lab, and several wireless access points in various places on campus, including the library, dining hall, and several classrooms. COA is fully engaged and committed to providing high quality, high speed, and reliable access to information networking and technology.
