The Bridge program is designed to build a strong foundation towards the Masters (M.F.A, M.Des, M.Plan) for applicants with undergraduate degrees in unrelated fields. The skill sets taught will enable you to move towards a career in the creative arts or creative industry.
Yes, you are eligible to apply for the Bridge program if you have completed a three-year degree in any subject from a recognized college/university such as a B.A., B.Com., B.Sc., B.Litt., BHM. etc.
On successful completion of the Bridge program, you get automatic entry into the Masters’ program at Srishti in the area of specialisation that you had chosen in the PGDP year.
The change of specialisation/course into the Masters program of your choice is not always possible or recommended.
During the first semester you are introduced to art and design tools and methods through hands on exercises. Towards the second semester you will be provided with skill sets that are essential to the specific field of study in art and design that you have chosen for your Masters program.
Srishti Manipal follows a continuous grading system. Each unit that you are enrolled into will be assessed. You will be expected to participate in a design challenge at the end of the year that will act as a practical examination and may also be required to produce a written paper that reflects theoretical understanding.
Students coming into the Bridge program can come from a completely non-art & design background of education if they wish to acquire essential skills needed for professions in the creative industry. Students choosing the Finish program would come with a prior education in art and design and are looking to extend and consolidate their learning through an immersive approach.
This will extend your skill and knowledge base in a chosen field of study or area of interest within Art and Design. This will also make you eligible to persue a Professional Masters programe in art or design.
