The ability to be creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial are vital skills in any number of fields. Our econo-mies, cultures, and quality of life all depend on the regular creation and use of original and helpful ideas, and recent research demonstrates that these important skills can be taught and learned. The interdisciplinary minor in Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship is appropriate for majors in fields where the creation, imple-mentation, and evaluation of original ideas is valued.
