About the Supporting Programs

In order to provide such a distinct, professional experience, several UNM departments must combine resources. For the past four years UCAM has overseen the project while C&J, IFDM, ASM and the Department of Music have all provided faculty advisors and equipment that enabled the internship to succeed. This year UCAM is excited to further it's partnership with the College of Fine Arts to include students from the Department of Cinematic Arts.

University Communication & Marketing (UCAM)

The purpose of UCAM is to share stories that show how the state’s flagship university enriches our local and global communities. UCAM aids news media, government agencies and the public seeking information about the university, and serves all UNM communities through news information services, marketing and branding. 

Office of Academic Affairs

The Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs is the chief academic officer of UNM. The Provost oversees the activities of the main campus schools and colleges, as well as the vice presidents for Research, Student Affairs and Equity and Inclusion. The Provost also oversees Graduate Studies, Enrollment Management and all aspects of academic personnel and curricula. 

Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media Program (IFDM)

The IFDM Program at UNM is a model of interdisciplinary education for the twenty-first century that will give students necessary critical, creative, and technical skills to apply digital technologies in innovative and productive ways. This program builds on ARTS Lab (Arts Research Technology and Science Laboratory), established in 2005 under former Governor Richardson’s Media Industries Strategy Plan (MISP). Coordinating ARTS Lab with existing strengths at UNM in Fine Arts, Engineering, Arts and Sciences, and Anderson Schools of Management, along with other schools and colleges, the Film and Digital Media Program has four objectives:

  • Integrate Filmmaking and Digital Media
  • Build a Native New Mexican Hollywood
  • Train the Citizens of New Mexico
  • Foster Research

College of Arts & Sciences, Department of Communication & Journalism (C&J)

The C&J Department at UNM creates excellence in learning through academic scholarship, teaching, and service to the community and the field. It offers undergraduate majors and minors in communication, multimedia journalism, and strategic communication. The undergraduate communication program has emphases in interpersonal, intercultural, environmental, organizational, public and media studies. Its journalism program is the only nationally accredited program in the state. At the graduate level, the department offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees that focus on the role of culture and change in communication.

College of Fine Arts, Department of Music

The Department of Music strives to give each student a quality, first-rate musical education. The special attributes of the Department are its artist faculty and a well-balanced program among the disciplines of performance, music education, composition and theory, jazz studies, string pedagogy, contemporary world music, and music history.

College of Fine Arts, Department of Cinematic Arts

The Department of Cinematic Arts is dedicated to the study and practice of film and video as art. In the hope of understanding and enhancing the immense role of film and video in the modern world, the program offers the student a broad foundation in the purposes of art and culture. Although one may study film and video for commercial purposes with little commitment to artistic and cultural standards, in the Department of Cinematic Arts, as in the College of Fine Arts, aesthetic criteria prevail. The Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Arts provides a liberal arts background which will enable the student to pursue further education and professional training.

Anderson School of Management (ASM)

The Anderson School of Management at UNM seeks to develop and inform business and management leaders through a balance of teaching and scholarship, and to contribute to economic development and the quality of life of our constituents.The faculty and staff of Anderson School of Management are dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and service. This commitment is focused on ensuring the success of all Anderson students.
