Fall 2023 Honors Courses

Note: ANY interested student may enroll in Honors Courses (EXCEPT the Honors Seminar) regardless of your GPA!

Honors Seminar (HON200-HON)

Creativity and the Imagination

Instructors: Meredith Gunning (Philosophy) and Marc Mannheimer (Art)

This course will take an interdisciplinary approach towards the perennial issues surrounding Creativity. It is important for all of us to realize that we all are creative regardless of whether or not we are pursuing a career in the usual fields seen as creative. In this course, you will be exploring your own imagination and creativity. What are these things; why do we use them; how do we use them, and how do others? What enhances Creativity and what may quash it? We will also explore methods of enhancing or expanding Creativity. Questions such as these will be considered: How can creativity be defined? Can creativity be learned or is it innate or is it a combination of both? Are Creativity and The Imagination different? If so how? Is Creativity a combination of conscious and unconscious responses? Is Creativity important to our self-identity and our own Humanity?
