Paramitha said that although there were inputs from alumni stating that Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies were better to provide specialization in the field of study for graduates, it turned out that inputs stated that Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies should prioritize interdisciplinary have a higher ratio.
Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies at the Graduate School, Universitas Gadjah Mada, which prioritizes multidisciplinary studies, aligns with the vision and mission of Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies. The output of this activity is the establishment of a new curriculum for Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies, which will be implemented in the new academic year 2022/2023. In addition to updating Expected Learning Outcomes (ELO) and Course Learning Outcomes (CLO), course restructuring is also carried out by adjusting the number of credits, adjusting course names, updating course descriptions, learning models, and procuring new courses, including Arts, Science, and Technology, and Art, Inclusion and Disability. With the updating of this curriculum, it is hoped that it will be able to answer the challenges of art studies in the future.
