Major or Minor Declaration

How to Declare a History of Art (HART) or Architecture and the Built Environment (ARCH) Major:

First, review the HART or ARCH Major requirements so that you will be familiar with them: 

HART:  https://as.vanderbilt.edu/historyart/undergraduate/requirements.php

ARCH: https://as.vanderbilt.edu/historyart/undergraduate/aberequirements.php 

 

Download the Declaration of Major/Minor Form: https://registrar.vanderbilt.edu/documents/UGRD-major-change2.pdf

Note : This is an electronic declaration form that is a fillable PDF. Students who access their email via the Apple Mail app on a Mac may need to access their email directly via GMail in order for the form to download properly. 

 

1. Contact Prof. Shaneyfelt, Director of Undergraduate Studies for the department, sheri.shaneyfelt@vanderbilt.edu, who will match you with a HART/ARCH faculty advisor and can answer any initial questions you may have about the major.

2. Contact your new HART/ARCH faculty advisor to obtain their signature on the form. Department faculty contact information is found here: http://as.vanderbilt.edu/historyart/people/faculty.php

3. Send your completed and signed form to the Office of Academic Services for your home school as indicated below. Students will need to fill out the top of the form, sign and date at the bottom of the form, and will need an advisor's signature for any new majors or minors declared on that form but not for already declared majors or minors.
