Registration Errors and Restricted Sections

Degree Program is highly scripted.  Please see Advisor for questions about sequencing.  If student needs an override to enter into an SHS course, the student must contact the Instructor of Record for the course.  If a student must place themselves on the wait-list for any course, they should contact their Advisor immediately. 

Degree Planning

With the exception of SHS 302, 303 and 310, most classes are taught only one time per calendar year (no classes are offered during the summer term).  Sequencing is highly structured and it is essential that students take the courses in the proper order to ensure timely completion of their undergraduate degree.  When students make their initial appointment with the SHS Advisor, an Undergraduate Degree Plan will be drawn up—to ensure that students know exactly when to which class and ensure accurate planning for graduate school.

Other Information

Given its highly structured and sequential nature, students are encouraged to meet with their advisor as early as possible to ensure timeliness to degree.  For students beginning the program as freshmen, the BA in SHS will take the full 8 semesters.  For students transferring to UNM with their general education courses completed, the BA in SHS will take 5 full-time semesters.  This program does require an accompanying minor or second major, please see Advisor or Faculty for options.
