What is NM Humanities Now!?

The NM Humanities Now! program helps college students in the Humanities make the transition from Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) to The University of New Mexico (UNM). This program is intended for CNM Humanities majors who wish to transfer into UNM Humanities majors. In addition to extensive support to guide you through the transfer process, NM Humanities Now! also provides:

  • Personal guidance and mentoring from current UNM Humanities graduate students
  • Internship and research opportunities
  • Career exploration services
  • Stipend money for Summer Academy at UNM, where you can earn 6 credits toward your degree
  • Stipend money for assisting with faculty research
  • Educational programs and presentations

What are the Humanities and why should I study them?

The Humanities at UNM encompass a wide and diverse set of majors. We believe that the Humanities offer valuable critical analysis skills and contribute to cultural innovation.

  • Explore how individuals and diverse societies, past and present, make meaning and assign value.
  • Explain how histories, cultural works, languages, and ideas shape diverse communities and relations between them.
  • Design ways of understanding diverse human experiences, including conflict and inequality, by examining cultural records.
  • Identify and analyze the sources of particular claims about human experience.

How do I work with a mentor?

Let us know you want to join NM Humanities Now! Email Danielle at dberrien@unm.edu to join the program.

Your mentor's goal is to guide you through the process of becoming a successful student at UNM, connecting you with the people and resources to do so.

You will be matched with a mentor as you transfer. Your mentor is a graduate student at UNM, pursuing either a Master's or Ph.D. degree, and very possibly was a transfer student from a community college to a 4-year university, like you! They can give you tips on navigating the system at UNM and they have the inside scoop on internship and research possibilities with UNM faculty.
