SMU's 423-acre campus in Taos, NM provides the perfect complement to the main campus in Dallas, TX. Undergraduate courses are offered during the summer and winter breaks. These short terms allow students to get ahead or stay on track for graduation. A wide variety of classes in art, engineering, business and science allow students of nearly every discipline to attend. Small class sizes, engaging faculty and a “classroom without walls” philosophy encourage experiential learning, deep dives into subject matter and tight bonds with faculty and classmates. Field trips are common and often include sites such as museums, Native American pueblos, local non-profits, historic churches, artist workshops, sustainable homes and many more. Adventurous learners will love this blend of natural beauty, local culture and academic pursuits.
