NEW DELHI: Manipal Academy of Higher Education has introduced a new programme called BA in Aesthetics and Peace Studies. This programme is a first of its kind and has been launched from this academic year along with many innovative features by the Gandhian Centre for Philosophical Arts and Sciences (GCPAS), Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE).
Gandhian Centre for Philosophical Arts and Sciences is a department that engages with interdisciplinary teaching and with its much-discussed interdisciplinary approach, the BA in Aesthetics and Peace Studies intends to connect liberal arts and social sciences.
Director of Gandhian Centre for Philosophical Arts and Sciences, Varadesh Hiregange said, “The idea is to provide education for both arguably ‘more creative/artistic potential and more intellectual acumen’ with the possibilities of meaningful careers. Their artistic, intellectual, and communicative abilities will be trained in such a way that they will be able to work in the areas of journalism, media, communication, social sector, international agencies, research, and publishing”.
“This is the trend, we see many such students with multiple interests. This is an attempt to create the learning opportunity for such students who can also make a career out of their talent. There will be multiple exit points in BA (Aesthetics and Peace Studies) in the sense that the students can study for three years and get a normal degree, can study for four years, and get an Honours degree, can study for two years, and get a diploma, can study for one year and get a certificate. Research becomes integral to the Honours degree which makes it different and on par with global standards,” he added further.
In the last two years, Gandhian Centre for Philosophical Arts and Sciences also launched two postgraduate programmes, which are MA in Ecosophical Aesthetics and MA in Art and Peace Studies.
