Abstract

The purpose of the researcher was to investigate the creativity and self-concepts of university students, specifically, to determine if differences existed between art students and non-art students. The following independent variables were investigated: college classification levels, sex-class membership, age and major. The sample of 244 subjects included males and females from five different college classification levels, and from different art and non-art majors. Two instruments were employed using a survey design with post- hoc groupings. Thirty-one hypotheses were tested at the .05 level of significance. Eighteen hypotheses were rejected. Results of the present study indicated that differences were found among art students and non-art students on scales of creativity, but not on the self- concept scale. Differences were found between male art and male non-art students, female art and female non art students all scales of creativity, but not on the self-concept scale. All the classification levels indicated differences on the scale of creativity. Non-art students indicated no differences on the classification levels for self-concept. No differences were found among the male and female students, art male and art female students, and non-art male and non-art female students on scales of creativity. Only non-art males and non-art females indicated differences on the self-concept scale. Differences were found for college ages on scales of creativity, while none were found on the self-concept scale. Differences were found among college majors for creativity and self-concept.
