The Srishti Foundation Studies Program exposes students to a holistic, heuristic and creative learning process that concentrates on the building of basic technical and conceptual skills in art, design and technology. The pedagogy is multi-disciplinary, research-oriented, self-initiated, self-directed and often self or peer-assessed, exploratory and experimental, contemporary and radical with sufficient exposure to the Liberal Arts.
By the end of the Foundation Studies Program, students are equipped with basic skill-sets and a basic understanding of possible disciplinary trajectories.
Foundation Studies Program students are free to exit Srishti after successfully completing two years with a Certificate of Completion.
