Major or Minor Declaration

How to Declare a History of Art (HART) Major:

First, review the HART Major requirements so that you will be familiar with them: https://as.vanderbilt.edu/historyart/undergraduate/requirements.php

The Declaration of Major form for the College of Arts and Science is linked on this page:

https://as.vanderbilt.edu/academics/policies/UGRD-major-change2.pdf

Students will need to print enough forms to leave one each with the major department(s) and the Office of Academic Services for the College of Arts and Science. Fill out the top part of the forms with your name and student ID number, etc. 

1. Contact Prof. Shaneyfelt, sheri.shaneyfelt@vanderbilt.edu, who will match you with a HART faculty advisor and can answer any initial questions you may have about the major.

2. Take your major declaration forms to your new HART faculty advisor to obtain his or her signatures on the forms. You will want to contact him or her first to find out his/her office hours; HART faculty contact information is found here: http://as.vanderbilt.edu/historyart/people/faculty.php

3. Please deliver one signed major form to the History of Art main office, Cohen 215.

4. Return one signed major form to the Office of Academic Services for the College of Arts and Science, located in 350 Buttrick Hall. For students with a double major, note that the form to be returned to the OAS must have the signature of all major advisers. Importantly, your new major will not be recorded with the Registrar until this form is submitted to A&S.
