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 does this program benefit me?
Breeze through the transfer process. Knowledgeable, experienced people work with you as you transfer, making the transfer experience easier for you. You receive personalized attention in every step of the process.
Maximize what you've already learned. Attend specialized events just for transfer students and learn how to apply your credits and acquired skills to academic, internship, and career possibilities.
Get paid to learn. We have summer study and faculty research assistance stipends ($1000 each!) available for NM Humanities Now! students.
Apply your knowledge. Gain research experience - a valued skill among employers and graduate schools - and explore different career options through specialized internship opportunities.
"Learn the ropes" of student life at UNM. Your personal Transfer Advocate can help you navigate life at UNM, empowering you with tips for personal and academic success at a large university.
Dig deep into your interests. Receive free admission to Humanities events and direct exposure to experts in your areas of study. Ask questions and make connections!
Email Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with a transfer advocate.
Your transfer advocate'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 transfer advocate (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.
The NM Humanities Now! Transfer Program is open to all humanities students transferring from CNM to UNM. Email Danielle at email@example.com to start the process. We look forward to hearing from you!
