MSc in Psychology of the Arts, Neuroaesthetics and Creativity

Looking for additional education opportunities in the field of creativity, art, empirical aesthetics or neuroaesthetics? Here is a great opportunity: Goldsmiths, University of London is launching a new MSc programme for the academic year 2018-19 in Psychology of the Arts, Neuroaesthetics and Creativity. It will be led by Guido Orgs, Rebecca Chamberlain, and Joydeep Bhattacharya.

The MSc in Psychology of the Arts, Neuroaesthetics and Creativity is the first postgraduate programme in the world for the scientific study of aesthetics and creativity. At the intersection of the arts and the sciences, the programme introduces you to the psychology and the cognitive neuroscience of how humans generate new ideas, how we appreciate beauty, and how we form preferences.

Students of this MSc will take core modules in psychology and neuroscience of aesthetics and creativity and scientific research methods, and optional modules in collaborating departments such as media and communications, computing and management students. A core component of the programme is a research project with an interdisciplinary focus, working with partners inside and outside the college.

The programme has a website with a broad overview: http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/msc-psychology-arts-neuroaesthetics-creativity/

Applications will open shortly before Christmas and in the meantime interested students can contact Guido Orgs (g.orgs@gold.ac.uk) or Rebecca Chamberlain (r.chamberlain@gold.ac.uk) for further information.
