Extending Humanities Transfer Program
Want to transfer / transition to UNM-ABQ and study something you love? We can help!
What is Extending Humanities Transfer Program?
The Extending Humanities Transfer Program supports college students from Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) or from UNM-Valencia, Gallup, Los Alamos, and Taos make their transfer journey more smoothly to the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque campus (UNM-ABQ). This program is intended for those students who wish to transfer into UNM-ABQ Humanities majors (see majors list below). In addition to extensive support to guide you through the transfer process, Extending Humanities also provides:
- Personal guidance and mentoring from current UNM-ABQ Humanities graduate students
- Stipend money for Summer Academy at UNM-ABQ, where you can earn 6 credits toward your degree
- Stipend money for assisting with faculty research
- Educational programs and presentations
- Internship and research opportunities
- Career exploration service
The Humanities at UNM-ABQ 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.

Email Danielle at email@example.com to get connected with a transfer bridge navigator.
Your transfer navigator's goal is to guide you through the process of becoming a successful student at UNM-ABQ, connecting you with the people and resources to do so.
You will be matched with a transfer bridge navigator (like a mentor) as you transfer. Your TBN is a graduate student at UNM-ABQ, 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 perhaps! They can give you tips on navigating the system at UNM-ABQ and they have the inside scoop on internship and research possibilities with UNM-ABQ faculty.
The Extending Humanities Transfer Program is open to all humanities students transferring from CNM or UNM Valencia, Gallup, Los Alamos, and Taos to UNM-ABQ. Email Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process. We look forward to hearing from you!
