I lived in ABQ for over 30 years. One of my daughters graduated from UNM with a math & physics degree; both my daughters went to UNM’s med school. Most of my daughters’ high school classmates went to UNM for college. (NM used to give every high school grad w/ 3.0 GPA 8 semesters of basically free tuition at a state U. Now grads get 70% of their tuition paid for 7 semesters and a retroactive tuition rebate for the 8th semester if they graduate in 4 years. Too good a deal for most people to pass up.)
RE: stacking w/ the Regents-- probably not going to happen, but there likely won’t be any issues with stacking the outside scholarship on top of the Amigo. (The Amigo is more of an automatic OOS tuition reduction for high achieving students instead of an actual dollars-in-the-student-account scholarship.) You should check with your child’s admission’s counselor to be sure. UNM’s [Admission Counselors](Connect :: Office of Admissions | The University of New Mexico)
Environmental studies are strong. The whole [UNM Biology Department](UNM Biology Faculty Research Areas) is very much enviro- evolution-ecology-conservation bio focused.
I don’t know anything about the theater tech program, but information about it is here–[Design & Technology for Performance](https://finearts.unm.edu/academics/departments/theatre-dance/design/)
Albuquerque & NM has HUGE TV & film industry presence. Check the [New Mexico Film Office](http://www.nmfilm.com) for what’s currently shooting in NM. Plentiful opportunities for UNM students to intern in network, cable and independent TV & film productions. (D1 occasionally worked as a TV & film extra before she started med school.)
UNM has a multi-million $$ digital media arts facility that includes a motion-capture production studio. UNM offers an unique interdisciplinary digital media degree program where students can specialize in the technical, artistic or business side of the film industry.

[Popejoy Hall/url is a major venue for traveling Broadway and other national productions. Students can also intern at the internationally famous [url=<a href=“https://www.santafeopera.org%5DSanta”>https://www.santafeopera.org]Santa Fe Opera](http://popejoypresents.com).
Post-grad employment in the film industry (both NM and Hollywood) is very strong.
