BA (Hons.) IEDA programme is actively engaged in redefining what it means to be a cultural and creative practitioner today. This is happening in two simultaneous and
related ways: firstly, the notion of art and design practices is expanded laterally to consider alternative skills, strategies and ways of knowing and secondly, the program positions itself in a multidimensional network of disciplines outside of art and design with which it forms fertile and unusual complexes e.g. a student may offer a design solution based on something they learnt in a science course, or they may create poetry out of a mathematical concept. Disciplines with which BA IEDA may converse include humanities, social sciences, creative technologies and scientific inquiry.
Located at the precipice of the future, BA IEDA strives to impart critical thinking and adaptive skills to its students. The program structure is highly customisable to the extent that students are free to determine their extent of engagement with a variety of disciplines as well as their studio to theory ratio. A student succeeding in this major is expected to be an independent thinker with broad interests.
