Declaring the Literature Major or Minor

All students must complete LIT 1, Literary Interpretation, or its equivalent before declaring the Literature major or minor. Students are encouraged to declare the major or minor as soon as they have completed the LIT 1 requirement.

  1. Log into MyUCSC and submit the Petition for Major/Minor via MyUCSC
  2. Schedule a meeting with a Literature Department adviser in order to review and complete the declaration form. Advising appointments may be scheduled through the Navigate app or Navigate Slug Success.
Students should plan to declare the major as soon as they have met the major qualification requirements and/or reached the declaration deadline quarter (prior to completion of the second year or equivalent for students who enter as frosh, or the second quarter at UCSC for junior transfer students), whichever comes first.
