Creativity is an important ability for students to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The aims of this study were to find out the profile of students’ scientific creativity of Faculty of Science and Technology UIN Walisongo based on study programs and gender differences. It was a descriptive research with a quantitative approach. The data were obtained through Scientific Creativity Test (SCT) for 870 students. The data were analyzed descriptively by averaging the score of scientific creativity so that the level of scientific creativity of the respondents was obtained. Further, they were presented based on study programs and gender of the students as their scientific creativity profile. The mean score of students’ scientific creativity was 43.25 with the standard deviation of 13.20. Only 9.12% of students were in Creative and Very Creative level. These indicated that the majority of students had a low level of scientific creativity. Based on the study programs, Biology Education students had the highest mean score of 52.08 with the standard deviation of 16.77. Meanwhile, the lowest mean score was obtained by Physics Education program students, namely 37.29 with the standard deviation of 12.00. Based on gender differences, the mean score of the female students was better than the male students, namely 43.34 compared to 43.01. These indicated that there was no significant difference in scientific creativity between male and female students
