Certificate in Creativity and Innovation

From the Department of Educational Psychology

Program Overview

Sometimes, the tools we have on hand aren't enough to get the job done and we need to borrow from our neighbor. Finding an alternative solution requires creativity, and reaching across disciplines for other perspectives often accomplishes that shift. With various perspectives providing novel approaches, the integration of interdisciplinarity, creativity, and innovation make sense.

By bringing departments and disciplines together under the umbrella of one program, this certificate gives graduate students added expertise and an advantage when applying for jobs in the workforce. This certificate improves and documents creative potential, something employers look for. The Certificate in Creativity and Innovation is a unique and collaborative partnership among multiple colleges, campus units, and faculty with an interest in promoting creativity and innovation. What makes this graduate certificate unique is that it has become the hub of creativity research across the UGA campus. If an art student wants access to courses on entrepreneurship in the MBA program, this certificate program helps with such practical and creative endeavors.

This program has been made possible with support from the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development.
