CRTY 801 Creativity Immersion

3 credits 126.0 hours
800 level graduate course

Creativity Immersion is an intensive two-week course focused on creative process, risk-taking and collaboration. Students will be immersed in a series of participatory artistic experiences, experimenting with new approaches to problem solving while drawing inspiration from the intuitive practices of the arts. By engaging with the artistic processes of creative writing, theatrical devising and design in public spaces, for example, students will cultivate a foundation of creative thinking to be applied within and beyond the arts. The course begins and ends with dissertation workshops where students will articulate their aims for interdisciplinary work and creative analysis as it relates to their dissertation topic. Additionally, the course includes a research methods seminar to consider the ways in which creative thinking may lead to innovative research.
