Semester: Winter 2024

Prerequisites: No Prerequisites.

Description: Creative Process is a course in which students are encouraged, in an interdisciplinary way, to explore processes of creativity. Activities are organized around a series of two-week hands-on workshops, weekly colloquia, and a final project, all of which are designed as opportunities to learn and practice — and even get good at — being creative in all sorts of ways in all kinds of situations. Aptitudes like empathy, storytelling, and experiencing awe are fostered, along with the ability to identify opportunities where none are apparent and the courage to make and share things that are beautiful and joyful. A team of five faculty from four different UM schools works closely with students to illustrate how thinking and working creatively bring greater productivity, accomplishment, meaning, and richness to life, academic, professional and personal.

Frequency: This course is typically offered in the winter term of every academic year, though scheduling may vary according to future term circumstances.
