EN 295 - Creativity


Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel argues that our brains are “creativity machines,” ultimately and efficiently designed for problem-solving. This course will explore the landscape of creativity, or the space between complex challenges and innovative solutions. Through weekly readings, creative practice activities, intensive writing exercises, and course projects, students will learn how to identify and re-frame problems, how to generate and test ideas, how to challenge assumptions, and how to tell a compelling story to communicate ideas.
