Aidan’s Story

Photo of Aidan“I chose to get a degree in economics because I’ve always been fascinated with how our world works and how economies play such a vital role. With the flexibility of an online format, I’ve been able to continue my job as an educator in the K-12 system and also develop my analytical skills to give me more options for future careers. The online coursework is straightforward with clear and concise learning targets for every course, which has helped me progress through this program. Advising from day one has been very insightful and supportive to help me on my journey to obtain my Economics Degree. The opportunity I’ve been provided by the University of Maine to get my degree in economics provides me with an invaluable skillset that I can apply to my current job as an educator, and future jobs.”
