This study evaluated and compared the levels of artistic creativity among undergraduate university students enrolled in distance learning programs across five distinct programs at a local university. The assessment focused on four key components: Fluency, Flexibility, Originality, and Elaboration. The results revealed significant differences in creativity between the programs, with Social Work students demonstrating higher levels of creativity compared to those in Tourism, and Marketing students surpassing their counterparts in the Tourism program. However, no significant differences in creativity were observed among other program pairings. Notably, while all programs excelled in the aspect of "Elaboration," "Fluency" displayed a lower performance in the swift generation of ideas. The findings underscored the potential influence of myths, beliefs, and dogmas on creativity, particularly among Theology students. Moreover, the visual expression styles employed by students in the Tourism program may not align with the kinesthetic nature of their career profiles. These findings emphasize the imperative for further research to explore these factors. In conclusion, this study highlights the significance of tailored approaches to nurture creativity within distinct undergraduate programs with distance learning components and the interplay of creative dimensions in professional preparation across various fields.
