The College of Arts and Sciences at New Mexico Highlands University is home to graduate programs in English, philosophy, life sciences, physical sciences, computer sciences, mathematics, engineering, physics and social sciences. In addition to serving the needs of its majors and minors in these disciplines, the College offers courses in the core curriculum as part of the university’s mission to provide a well-rounded education for its students. 

Arts and Sciences graduate programs showcase excellence in teaching, research, and public service. Embracing the vision of our strategic plan, we strive to be the flagship comprehensive university in New Mexico, serving students from all walks of life.

 

Graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences not only help students acquire knowledge, verbal and cognitive skills, but also to embrace the values and attitudes that form the basis of a liberal education. Our graduate programs also instill within students the ability and desire to think and work independently and creatively, to appreciate learning for its own sake, and to recognize the lifelong benefits of a commitment to truth and excellence. 

The purpose of research in the college is to amend and extend the bases of knowledge and creative activities, to renew and enrich our teaching resources, to exemplify in our own work superlative scholarly habits that will provide a model to which our students may aspire, and to share our knowledge and the fruits of our labors with the scholarly community, our students, and the general public. 


The college’s public service commitment signifies that in all our scholastic endeavors, we will remember that the purpose of our activities is to benefit the members of the regional, state and world communities. Furthermore, recognizing that its involvement extends beyond the confines of the university, our commitment is to confront the urgent problems presented by geographical, political, racial, and gender boundaries. The College works with an eye to the resolution of problems in today’s complex and changing world.
