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.
Are you interested in getting hands-on experience reporting, writing and editing news stories, and using digital tools to tell tales with more than words? The Journalism Practice Minor provides you with the skills to craft stories while allowing you to specialize in the field(s) of journalism that you enjoy most.
With the explosion of websites, podcasts and social media, more and more people find themselves using the skills of a journalist in the dissemination of information in both their private and professional lives. This minor is intended for those students who wish to bring more professionalism and sophistication to the things they post online, or hope to offer a skill set that will make them more versatile and employable in their chosen field. It will also serve those who may be considering a career in journalism, but find themselves too late in their college careers to switch majors.
Do you enjoy consuming the news and find yourself wondering just how it’s put together? The Journalism Studies Minor provides you with a background in journalism’s history, and the skills and tools reporters and editors use to assemble— and ultimately tell—stories.
With an ever-growing array of information options available, and with the news media making news in the early days of the new administration in Washington, interest in the workings of journalism has never been higher. This minor is intended for those students who wish for a sophisticated media literacy, an understanding of the field that goes deeper than what can be gained in our popular Interpreting the Day’s News course.
In today’s digital age, photos, videos and documentaries resonate strongly, and in the world of journalism, this is no exception. In the Photojournalism Minor, you’ll develop skills in photography and video to create engaging and impactful stories.
Are you passionate for the visual side of storytelling? As our society continues to move towards a world of technology, the power of photos become that more important. This minor will engage students on how to visually tell a compelling story. It will give students the skill sets needed to succeed in that endeavor.
