In 1878, Maine governor Selden Connor approved and signed an act which would establish a training school for teachers in the Madawaska territory. Throughout its years as the Madawaska Training School, the University of Maine at Fort Kent saw multiple expansions, curriculum additions, and a total of three principals. Since becoming the University of Maine at Fort Kent in 1970, the school has continued to see changes, both physically and academically. A variety of liberal arts majors and minors have been added through out the years. Originally established as a teaching school, UMFK's teaching program remains one of the strongest in the state.
UMaine Fort Kent offers associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, many of which are available completely online through the Distance Education department.
