Creative activity is original and imaginative contributions of the artistic mind; playing with new ideas, creating artworks and other forms of cultural expression.
 
UMSL has many world-renowned artists, musicians, actors, poets, etc. who focus primarily on developing creative projects. Many of these faculty mentor and nurture UMSL’s undergraduate students.
 
Possible models include working with a faculty member on his or her creative activities or a faculty member mentoring a student on an independent project. Credit may be possible for some projects; others will be for the student’s own creative development. 
 
While some of the opportunities will be for majors only, many others will be open to a broad spectrum of UMSL students. Click on "departments"  and "about" to the left to find out detailed expectations and requirements, as well as departments and faculty memebers to work with.
