At Srishti we believe that academic learning cannot happen in isolation, from the societal and industrial needs and demands. We believe that there has to be a constant dialogue between academics and industry to help shape the next generation of creative design leaders impacting industry and society. There is a gap between academia and industry. While academic learning tends to focus on an ideal and conceptual design, industry needs exceptional application of creative, technological and production skills in real-world settings. Our 2-year MA is the culmination of the synergy between academic principles and industry needs. [+]

Access to land is a key determinant for livelihood security, and it is becoming highly contested in rural and urban areas. Increasingly, livelihoods based directly from land are becoming precarious; and land for the basic necessity of housing is also becoming unaffordable. In the last two decades we have witnessed changes in the pattern of investments and the nature of industrialization, growth of the service sector, rapid urbanization, agrarian distress, and rather polarized environmental debates. These changes have added a new dimension to the set of relationships that have previously determined ownership of land, work based on land including labour, the environmental quality of land, and food security. The increasing commodification of land is contributing to widening inequalities in rural and urban communities. Moreover “livelihoods” are also being fetishized in many State and non-State interventions, where people are viewed only as beneficiaries, and not as real actors with their own sense of agency. [+]
In this program the student will learn how “humanity” is conceived of in different cultures, including but not focusing only on the West.

As the scope of our design practices increasingly encompasses the digital, it is instructive and intellectually responsible to consider more deeply how technology has always shaped our understandings of the world. The discipline of the digital humanities explores how the questions posed in humanities scholarship are transformed and extended by the digital – both by means of tools and epistemologies. This unique MA seeks to enrich the scope of both design practice and the digital humanities by using critical methodologies and approaches to reciprocally reflect upon the other. By doing so, students will be able to adapt the modes of inquiry and methodologies embedded in humanities thinking to create both more contextually relevant and responsive technological applications and material objects. [+]
