Summer school at the University of New Mexico is in full swing. This year, UNM offers an array of classes across all 20 departments and 10 interdisciplinary programs, a larger diversity of upper division courses and more scheduling options than ever before.

Courses offerings cut across all categories of the core. Students can take courses that help them progress through their majors. Diane Marshall, associate dean for curriculum and instruction in the College of Arts & Sciences, said this is particularly important for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors, where long sequences of courses are required.

Students in the College of Arts & Sciences are required to complete 54 hours of upper division courses and this summer, students find an assortment to choose from across the arts and sciences spectrum. “Some classes available this summer include Psychology of Perception, Serial Murder Communication, Ecological and Evolutionary Genetics and many more,” Marshall said.

According to UNM Enrollment Management, more than 8,000 students are participating in summer school. About 75 percent of students are undergraduate and 25 percent are graduate students. Both undergraduate and graduate students take advantage of classes to complete core requirements. Themed institute or field study, immersive writing, foreign language experience and internships are also available for students during the summer. More than 100 online classes are also being offered.

It’s not too late to register for a course. “This year, UNM offers more scheduling options than in years past,” Marshall said. “Classes range from one week to eight weeks.” Online courses are an option, like every semester. It’s too late to join the first half of classes that started on June 2; however, courses starting in mid-June and early July are still open.
