Creative Pulse Summer Graduate Program


Applications are open! The Creative Pulse embraces critical thinking processes and habits of the mind, enabling our students to develop, refine and integrate these processes into their own thinking and learning abilities, as well as those of their students.The Master of Arts in Integrated Arts and Education is completed over two consecutive summer sessions plus independent studies and a final project. This schedule allows maximum convenience and flexibility to working educators. The immersion of summer residency is unique to the Creative Pulse. 

We also welcome non-degree-seeking, postbaccalaureate and students from other graduate programs seeking elective and professional development coursework. Click here to see our Summer 2022 offerings.
