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.

The minor in ethnomusicology offers students an opportunity to explore music in its cultural contexts. The foundation of the minor is a unique introductory course, Music in Everyday Life (MUSC 1001), which investigates many dimensions of the musical experience and music’s connections to society. Students take in-depth electives that focus on the music of a region, tradition, global popular trends, etc.  The minor culminates in a course that invites students to conduct their own ethnographic projects in and around Boston.
