Experiential learning starts in the classroom
CAMD provides students with a platform to experiment and explore. We push beyond traditional, theoretical approaches to learning by weaving the act of practice into our courses—from artists, actors, and musicians honing their craft to journalists investigating their next story to communicators keeping their pulse on media trends. At the core of our curriculum, experiential learning moves from hands-on work in the classroom to opportunities on co-op, in research, and around the globe, engaging students in new and innovative ways—and preparing them for real-world success.
