The Caltech-Huntington Program in Visual Culture was established in 2019 with funding under a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Designed as a collaboration between HSS and The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens (The Huntington), the CHVC program includes undergraduate course offerings, postdoctoral instructorships, artists residencies with professional visiting artists, and a wide range of programming activities—with the aim of fostering new conversations not only among humanists but also between humanists and scientists.

In the 2020-2021 academic year, roughly one fifth of Caltech's undergraduate students enrolled in the growing number of visual culture classes on subjects ranging from Plantation Imaginaries to Volcanoes to Picturing Science. Caltech added a minor in visual culture to its curriculum as of the fall of 2021.
