The Creativity concentration is designed to generate creative thinkers, makers, and doers. Drawing from courses across academic disciplines, the Creativity concentration covers topics such as verbal and symbolic language, the visual arts, sound, and performance. Courses in this concentration will raise fundamental questions about the nature of art and creativity, the creative process, the ethical dimensions of art, and the relation between the arts and society.
Objectives in this concentration include empowering students to create original artistic pieces, collaborate with others in hands-on projects, speak and write persuasively about their reactions to artistic texts, and think critically about the role of art in different historical contexts.
Graduates in the Creativity concentration will be prepared for careers in fields pertaining directly to the arts, as well as in fields requiring skills in verbal and non-verbal communication, such as:
Writing and Editing
Additionally, students wishing to pursue further education will be well-prepared for graduate study in the arts and art history and in a broad range of humanities disciplines.
