Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies (2016 - 2018)
The CAMS minor requires five courses (18-20 points) as follows 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.
- 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 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 (see below).
CAS students: please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to declare the minor. All other NYU students: please declare the minor via the cross-school minor application on Albert.
CAMS courses are currently offered at NYU London and NYU Sydney. Consult the CAMS website for complete course offerings.
For more information, please contact the CAMS adviser at email@example.com.
PSYCHOLOGY AND SOCIAL WORK MAJORS
Psychology majors and social work majors may count one course toward both the minor and their major.
Note that if a psychology student counts a CAMS course toward the psychology major, a psychology course cannot be used for the CAMS minor. Alternatively, if a psychology student counts a psychology course toward the CAMS minor, a CAMS course cannot 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.
