The article deals with the problem of studying the issues of creative thinking, cognitive styles and coping strategies among students. The importance of this problem is determined by contemporary society and its social demand, requiring that a young specialist should be creative, he should have a non-standard approach, he could generate new ideas that can help him cope with difficulties and resolve stressful situations. An empirical study was conducted to analyze the relationship between the indicators of creative thinking, the cognitive styles of “Field Dependence-Field independence” and students’ coping strategies. Fifty-two people participated in it, among them 26 students of the Faculty of Humanities of Ulyanovsk State University and 26 students of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of Kazan Federal University. The interpretation of this study results allowed us to draw the major conclusions: students of humanities programs with developed creative thinking are focused on external factors, do not strive to avoid problem resolution, but when they encounter a problem situation, the primary negative reaction prevents them from resolving it quickly, thereby enabling them to correctly plan and find optimal ways out of this stressful situation; creative students-mathematicians are less susceptible to external factors, have a high control of emotions, they are capable of generating new solutions, which allows them to take conscious steps to solve the problem.
