Dean's Message

Welcome to University College – or UC as we are known!

We are one of the few UNM colleges devoted exclusively to undergraduate student success. We are also unique in that all of our programs are collaborative: we work with schools, colleges and departments throughout the UNM system. UC advisors know the many academic pathways available at UNM and work with students who aren’t ready to decide on a major or are preparing for admission to one of UNM’s many health career majors.

Any UNM student can take advantage of UC’s collaborative and interdisciplinary focus. Many first year students enroll in a Learning Community, Success Seminar, or other freshman-only course coordinated by UC. We offer them in virtually every field, so there is sure to be one that fits your schedule and interests. Native American Studies offers an interdisciplinary degree that emphasizes leadership, education, sustainability and community. The Research Service Learning Program can help you combine community service with your education. And if you would like to craft your own degree program by combining courses from multiple academic fields, you can do that with either a Bachelors of Liberal Arts or a Bachelors of Integrative Studies.

Your educational journey can be as individual as you are. Click through our webpage and see what UC has to offer you!
