Course Description

What is the process underlying creativity and what are the characteristics of creative people? These questions have occupied the interests of researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of subdisciplines in psychology. Students will learn what psychological research can tell us about how creativity can be defined, how it develops, and how it manifests itself across various cultures and content domains. Grounded in research, PSYC 3240 will also have a strong applied emphasis, encouraging students to explore the creative process through discussion and small group experiential learning exercises.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in BUSM 2200; or PSYC 1115 and 1215.
