Minors

Minors are an excellent way to supplement your academic studies, explore an interest or passion, deepen your knowledge base, and develop a distinctive set of tools that can help you define a tangible career path. At CAMD, we actively seek ways to break the traditional, discipline-specific relationship between minors and majors. Every year, we create new minors that are strategically designed to cultivate complementary and interdisciplinary skill sets—so you can forge your own path.
