The Creativity Exploratory

An innovative, practice-based addition to the College of Arts and Letters curriculum, the Creativity Exploratory offers a unique learning environment designed to enhance CAL majors through the creation of projects and real-world problem solving. In hands-on informal learning experiences, students and faculty can collaborate on projects that integrate skills from various majors. The Creativity Exploratory has a computer lab with updated software which students can use for their coursework. Includes student access to Adobe Create Suite.
