Have you ever wondered: Why are some people more creative than others? What influences encourage creativity? Is it possible to teach creativity? This type of questioning drives the curiosity behind the MA in Creative Thinking. The course is intended for aspiring researchers who want to develop a specialised interest in Creative Thinking without the necessity of on-campus attendance. Ultimately, the MA is about creating postgraduates who can interrogate, and eventually add to, research on Creative Thinking (we’re particularly interested in research related to the Creative Industries). If that’s your aspiration also, then read on.
Applicants must demonstrate achievement of any one of the following:
Receipt of a 2.2 degree, or higher from a British university
A high level of achievement in undergraduate studies at a university elsewhere, eg for North American students a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale
Professional experience in the field or a related field in their home country
Part of the application procedures for entry to the course is to establish - through a written personal statement - why candidates want to do the course, and how this relates to their personal and career development plans.
International Students are required to show competence in written and spoken English in addition to meeting the course entry requirements: International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) - minimum 7.5.
The next module examines key aspects and issues found in Creative Thinking. Moreover, the impact of research methodology on the validity and reliability of research findings is also explored in this module. This culminates in a critical look at a specialised aspect of Creative Thinking, where you begin to argue for, and comment on, the merits and weakness of different schools of thought on a specialised aspect of Creative Thinking: for example, methods for the assessment creative thinking.
The final group of modules develops your own specialised field and interest. This is the Dissertation Project in Creative Thinking. Here you will have the opportunity to undertake a sustained investigation into a clearly identified area of interest relevant to your own interest in Creative Thinking.
