What We Offer

The College of Arts and Sciences provides a broad-based education in the natural sciences, the social sciences, and humanities that transforms lives and shapes futures. We create and disseminate new knowledge, foster and support scholars and researchers, educate the next generation of professionals and public servants, and develop engaged, cross-culturally literate citizens.

Our departments and programs not only provide the knowledge that is fundamental to the intellectual and educational activities across the entire campus, they also integrate and contextualize that knowledge in ways that connect students to the past and prepare them for the future.

A&S Research

Researchers is a cave

A&S is the largest single research unit on main campus that generates roughly $50 million in new and continuing external research funding per year.  Of that, approximately $2.5 million per year is returned for investment in the research and scholarship mission.  Our diverse portfolio includes funding from agencies like the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Department of Energy, the Department of the Interior, the State of New Mexico, and many others.  In addition, faculty and student fellowships are funded through private foundations and non-governmental agencies.
