The goal is to enable potential researchers and practitioners to investigate and critique the nature of social change, technology and development in India using a range of interrelated perspectives, creating an intellectually exciting environment for research.
The last few decades in India have been characterized by major transformations in the economy, culture, politics, environment, and technologies. Liberalization and the IT revolution have brought economic prosperity to certain sections of the population against the backdrop of continuing acute poverty, as well as serious contestations over the nature of development in the country. Much of this change has been driven by technological development and intervention, which in India, like much of the global south, is characterized by both state-driven and corporate machinery as well as indigenous creativity and improvisation. The unique nature of this landscape demands specific, contextually informed inquiries, which challenge existing paradigms that shape the study of these developments in the West, using diverse methodologies and theoretical frameworks drawn from disciplines such as:...

M.A. in Indian Thought and Practices
The specialization in Indian Thought and Practices is a structured and intensive study with a substantial component of individual research. This program opens up new ways of entering the inquiries and practices of different Indian traditions. Both pedagogy and research will center on the learner as a seeker, an apprentice, who will be guided by a practitioner. The search may not necessarily take the form of a theoretical treatise. It may be a work of art, a poetic performance, and a meditative intervention.
The program prepares the students with skills to be independent researchers, undertake scholarly work, publish and pursue further research-based programs.
Practitioners of different arts, craft and science would be able to deepen their pursuit through interdisciplinary inquiries into Indian traditions.
It allows students to produce research-based creative outputs such as paintings, illustrations, musical compositions, performances and others as part of their study.

The program in Public Pedagogy and Art Practice at Srishti brings together a rich set of practices from cultural activism, public art, urban and rural studies and the study of local knowledge systems into an emerging area of study that looks at traditional and contemporary public creative practices that are used to educate, inspire and provoke a larger public.

They are community based, multi-age and focus on social transformation that challenges mainstream elite forms of knowledge production. The program takes learning back to the street by understanding practices and practitioners that have rejected the exclusive institutional structures, focusing instead on peoples’ science, peoples; medicine, peoples’ history and peoples’ education....
The MA in Visual Communication Design will enable such a graduate to integrate existing models of thinking and making with emerging technologies and methods in the field
Young graduates of applied art, commercial art, graphic design and visual communication design often feel the need to step out of the daily demands of the profession to engage in new learning, to experiment and enhance their creative capabilities and to sharpen their thinking and making skills so as to transform their abilities and become proficient practitioners.

M.A. in Professional Practice in Oral History
The Professional Practice in Oral History (PPOH) is a Masters program. The program is tailored for working professionals in the area of history, ethnography, film, and teaching practices and disciplines and practices other than humanities. A genuine interest in the ‘past’, people, and memories, is a pre-requisite for this program. At Srishti, we believe that the practitioner of oral history works towards the production of knowledge, by working with a range of groups, and thus contributes, to the democratization of history. Oral history collects, archives, analyses and interprets the experiences of individuals, communities, and institutions concentrating on recording individuals who have so far been “hidden from history” in their own voice, and moves away from the conventional idea of history as only being the story of the nation and the process of its formation. The practice of oral history demonstrates the way in which multiple voices articulate and reconstruct the past. We envision the Professional Practice in Oral History program as a learning opportunity for professionals to:...

The Screen Studies program at Srishti provides a theoretical, and art and design framework within which students can develop a set of critical making and thinking skills
M.A. in Screen Studies
The screen is the key interface through which we negotiate our world. Digital tools, platforms, and information together with the algorithms that make up the DNA of today’s screens are as significant a game changer as were the inventions of the printing press and photography to the 15th and 19th centuries. The Masters in Screen Studies enables students to develop a critical perspective on contemporary screen culture and to explore daily engagements with screen media through Srishti’s distinctive approach to practice-based learning.
In the contemporary moment, a time of rapid transformation in art, society and technology, artists, media practitioners, designers and critical thinkers are grappling with digitization and convergences between traditional screen-based media – film, television, video, and photography – and the stream of social and other media forms arising out of today’s networked and screen-based technologies. When screens are everywhere, how we read, interact and communicate through them is fundamental to the practice of literacy and artistic expression in the 21st century. The Screen Studies program at Srishti provides a theoretical, and art and design framework within which students can develop a set of critical making and thinking skills in the context of the current digital revolution and the multiple screens – mobile, web, tablet and so forth – that we wear, carry with us, encounter in public spaces and install in our homes and workplaces....
The Srishti MA in Public History and Heritage Interpretation offers students a program like no other, enriched by insights from design and humanities thinking. This ‘hand
What values can the past bring to the fast-paced and swiftly changing present? How can we discover and interpret where the roots of the present lie? The contemporary moment offers us new opportunities and new technologies with which to explore the historical, bring to the fore people’s experiences of the past, and through that new understanding recreate and present new perspectives on heritage.
We envision the Public History and Heritage Interpretation as an opportunity to learn new ways of engaging with historical sites, monuments and institutions and thus address the contemporary challenges of interpreting history. This specialization will empower students to include in their interpretations of heritage the diverse voices that have been ignored so far and so engage with history outside conventional academic practice. This specialization will create professionals who have the ability to transform museums, heritage sites, and archives into spaces that dynamically interpret the past by reimagining history with new technologies....
