Undergraduate Advising

You may petition to declare the CRES major upon completion of CRES 10 with a grade of C or better. The pre-requisite for CRES 10 is your C1 writing course. Students interested in majoring in Critical Race & Ethnic Studies should meet with the undergraduate advisor to discuss the major and complete a major requirements worksheet with your proposed plan of study. In order to declare the major, your proposed major requirements worksheet must be reviewed and approved by the CRES Undergraduate Advisor, Sam Cardenas. You can email her at sgcarden@ucsc.edu 

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