Creativity in the Arts and the Sciences


No.:  **** Section: 001 7:00-8:30, Wednesday
NRC 1105 Dr. James Van Etten and Dr. Patrice Berger No ACE

In this course, students will be exposed to a variety of interesting subjects presented by distinguished faculty members. Since many students often enter college with a narrow vocational path in mind, we hope to expand and enrich their thoughts about life, careers, and learning. Here are a few discussion ideas that faculty will present:  1. How are both intellectual inquiry and intuition central to creative activity in the arts and in the sciences?   2. Why is it important to find a “career of heart”?  3. What experiences do they enjoy as a scientist, scholar, artist…?  4. When and why did they choose a particular discipline and career?  5. What advice do they have for students about how to enrich their university experience (for example, how to pick the best professors and the most rewarding classes)?
