The New England School of Communications is a small college located in Bangor, Maine. NESCom offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Communications Technology, Entertainment Production and in Media Studies.
The New England School of Communications and Husson University plan to integrate as one institution beginning with the fall 2014 semester. Were doing this because it will increase the academic and career opportunities for all of our students. By adding a premier communications and multi-media program to Husson, the resources of NESCom can be strengthened and the offerings of the university expanded. By becoming a part of Husson, the credibility and prestige of a university degree will enhance career and post graduate opportunities for NESCom students. It will also provide the opportunity to create minors, graduate, part-time, and online courses and programs in communications.
This union has been a long time coming as both have been together on the Husson campus since the mid-1980s. In sharing the Bangor campus, Husson and NESCom students have dined, lived, studied, and played together for the past 30 years. In recent years, the development of the Gracie Theater and the opportunity for NESCom students to play on Husson intercollegiate teams has drawn the two even closer. This fall, Husson and NESCom will pursue the final accreditation and regulatory steps to become one institution.
