Undergraduate Advising

You may petition to declare the CRES major upon completion of CRES 10 with a grade of C or better. Initially, students interested in majoring in Critical Race & Ethnic Studies should meet with the undergraduate advisor to discuss the major and complete an academic planning form with your proposed plan of study. In order to declare the major, your proposed plan of study must be reviewed and approved by either CRES Director Neda Atanasoski or Undergraduate Director Christine Hong.

Links to the campus forms can be found to the left.

For students entering UC Santa Cruz as frosh or transfers, the CRES major can be easily completed within four years or two years, respectively. The CRES Program welcomes students switching from other majors; you should meet with the undergraduate advisor to discuss a plan to keep you on track to meet your graduation goal.

During the summer, there is no drop-in advising; please contact Connie Creel for an appointment at (831) 459-2757 or conleth@ucsc.edu
