The Master Program of Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies held a Curriculum Review Workshop on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, with students, alumni, and stakeholders online, and continued on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, with lecturers offline at the Shantika Hotel, Yogyakarta. This event is a routine agenda held in the framework of the curriculum restructuring design of the Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies Master Study Program. Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies update its curriculum every five years.
This year, a curriculum review workshop was held to solicit input from students, alumni, stakeholders, and lecturers before these inputs were processed and reviewed by the Study Program Quality Assurance Team and Study Program Curriculum Development Team.
Dr Rr. Paramitha Dyah Fitriasari, M.Hum., in her speech, said, “This event is a form of concern for the study program in responding to the development of art science to keep it up to date and by the community’s need for art studies”. In line with this, Dr Lono Simatupang, the Head of Study Program Quality Assurance, stated the importance of changing the curriculum to anticipate the future direction of the art world.
As many have reported, many types of work and artistic needs today are lost, and in their place, new types of work and artistic needs will emerge. Thus the curriculum must adapt to provide for the changing needs of core skills.
