The academic programme offered by the Sri Palee Campus for the Special Degree in Performing Arts is unique among similar programs offered by other Universities, and it radically breaks away from conventional Fine Arts Degree Programmes. Its uniqueness is closely related to its being contemporary. The Programme creatively responds and engages with contemporary socio- cultural and technological contexts as well as developments in terms of new trends and discourses in the field of Performing Arts. The Program takes into special consideration the developments in relation to the contexts of inter-cultural and inter-traditional encounters, powerful electronic media environment and modern technology.
