Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies (2018 - 2020)
The CAMS minor requires five courses (18-20 points) completed with a C or better as follows:
- Child and Adolescent Psychopathology (CAMS-UA 101) is required of all minors and is a prerequisite for some advanced courses in CAMS.
- In addition to CAMS-UA 101, students must complete at least two more CAMS-UA courses.
- The remaining two courses can either be CAMS-UA courses or approved non-departmental courses. For a list of these approved non-CAMS courses, please see “Courses in Other Departments” or the CAMS website.
Courses taken for the CAMS minor cannot also be used for another major or minor. The only exceptions are made for majors in psychology and social work and for nursing students, as follows.
- Psychology majors and social work majors may count one course toward both the CAMS minor and their major. Note that if a psychology student counts a CAMS course toward the psychology major, a psychology course cannot also be used for the CAMS minor. Alternatively, if a psychology student counts a psychology course toward the CAMS minor, a CAMS course cannot also be used for the psychology major. The same rule applies to social work majors and social work courses.
- Nursing students can count Introduction to Psychology (PSYCH-UA 1) and Developmental Psychology Across the Lifespan (APSY-UE 1271) toward both the CAMS minor and their major. To complete the minor these students must take three CAMS-UA courses, one of which must be CAMS-UA 101.
