CRTY 835 Creativity Paradigms I

1 credit 45.0 hours
800 level graduate course

This is an intensive course held in January of the first year. The course includes a writing seminar with UArts creative writing faculty, participatory artistic experiences, a presentation from a visiting instructor, and a dissertation workshop. The writing seminar will guide students in crafting and refining their writing voice for the dissertation, while the engagement with artistic processes will reinforce and build upon the creative-problem solving skills developed in the previous Creativity Immersion course. The course’s visiting expert will present and discuss with students a specialized research project with broad interdisciplinary implications, guiding students to explore the approach and methods as they may be applicable to the students’ own research interests. The course finishes with a dissertation workshop where students can reevaluate their approach to the dissertation using insights gained from the visiting instructor, writing seminar, artistic experiences, and the feedback of their cohort and program director.
