How To Declaration

Art in museum

To declare the major, students must complete two history of art and visual culture courses (or equivalent transfer coursework), chosen from two different geographic regions. All students considering the major or minor are encouraged to complete these courses early in their studies and consult with the HAVC undergraduate adviser to develop a plan of study.

Students are eligible to declare the HAVC minor at any time.

Declaration Process:

  1. Download the Petition for Major/Minor Declaration and UCSC Academic Planning Form and complete the student information.
  2. Meet with the HAVC undergraduate advisor to discuss major requirements and complete the declaration and planning form together. Email havc@ucsc.edu for an appointment or drop-in (see contact information for drop-in hours and office location).
  3. The declared major/minor will appear on the student’s portal when the declaration process is complete.

Please note: Students planning a double major or major/minor program must meet with undergraduate advisors from each program. If you are adding HAVC to an existing academic plan, please visit that major advisor first for up-to-date and signed declaration and planning forms and bring those with you to see the HAVC advisor.
