Undeclared Arts Majors
Artistic expression, study of the visual arts in civilizations and across media, production of audio-visual and digital texts, socially responsible and sustainable design, and performance all form the core of the arts at UC Davis. Students who pursue majors in the arts learn to think practically and humanistically about the world and their place in it, while also learning to translate their unique vision into creative representations of universal concerns and aspirations that illuminate the human experience.
In a world dominated by visual communications and careers that increasingly call for strong interpersonal skills, technical literacy, flexibility, and teamwork, a foundation in the arts can lay the groundwork for creative and independent thinking, problem-solving and analysis—highly valued skills for a success after graduation.
Majors in the arts range from cinema and digital media, art and art history, and music to theatre and dance, design, and art studio. Undeclared majors in the arts have a wide diversity of choices to explore and combine for a rich and rewarding beginning to their studies in the UC Davis College of Letters and Science.
