Until now, the Taos Campus has been a minimum of a two week time commitment for SMU students.

But with SMU’s Summer Intensive Creating Writing Program, the adventure and beauty of Taos is now open to those who have only a few days of summer to spare. The program is five days long, starting on July 14 and ending on July 18.

There are four available courses: Creative Writing Introduction, Novel Track: The Story, All Tracks: Chapters, and Inspired Mind: Creativity Workshop. Although focusing on different outlets and styles of creative writing, each course is six sessions and runs from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

To find out more, there will also be an information session on April 22. Registration for any of the four courses is now open online.

Campus News Blog: More Taos Chances Available

All students who applied for the SMU-in-Taos May Term will know if they are accepted by March 17 after 10:00 A.M.

For students who did not get into the May Term, they can reapply for admission to the June Term, the longest of the summer sessions offered, or the August term.

There are also some incentives to applying to the summer’s later programs. First, from a weather perspective, Taos in May can still get quite cold. You are, after all, at 7,000 feet elevation.

Students also have more classes offered during the June Term, and they can rack up more hours because of the length of the program.

The June Term also offers scholarship opportunity that deadline hasn’t passed. All students interested should apply. Three will receive the award, which covers the cost of one 3 credit course. The Richter Scholarship is for June only.

If students didn’t get accepted to the May Term in Taos, they shouldn’t waste any time to reapply so that they can still experience the campus another time this summer.

The deadline for applications to the SMU-in-Taos program is rapidly approaching. All SMU students who wish to study at SMU’s Fort Burgwin campus during the May term must submit their applications by Tuesday, March 2.

The list of offered courses is available here.

The May term is approximately two weeks long, beginning on Wednesday, May 12 and ending on Sunday, May 30. The program gives students the opportunity to earn up to four hours of SMU credit while experiencing the rugged beauty of Taos, NM. The cost of the May term varies based on the number of course hours and type of accommodation.

Along with the scenery and the chance to earn class credit, another appealing element may attract students’ attention to the Fort Burgwin campus. The entire campus was recently renovated in preparation for the first full semester, fall term. The campus now has cell phone service, upgraded dormitories, and a bigger common room for students to hang out.
