Declaring the Literature Major or Minor

PLEASE NOTE: All students must complete LIT 1 Literary Interpretation or its equivalent before declaring the Literature major or minor. We encourage students to declare the major or minor as soon as they have completed the LIT 1 requirement.

  1. Print a Petition for Major/Minor Declaration. Fill out the petition to the best of your ability. Be sure to indicate your expected graduation term (EGT) on the petition. Your EGT can be found in your Student Advising Summary on your MyUCSC Student Portal.

  2. Make an appointment to meet with a Literature Department faculty advisor in order to review and complete your declaration form.

    You may schedule an advising appointment by calling (831) 459-4778 or signing up at the Literature Department office (Humanities 1, room 303).
