Interwoven Learning and a future-focussed curriculum

Krea University is looking for dynamic faculty who will co-create our future-ready approach called Interwoven Learning. Using the liberal arts & sciences tradition as its base, Interwoven Learning weaves together:

  • Intellectual inquiry and experiential learning
  • Arts and sciences
  • Subject matter expertise and broad-based awareness
  • Eastern and Western perspectives
  • Learnings from the past and present to ready students for the future

Our curriculum and programme structures have been designed in sync, by leading academics, to ensure that students have strong roots in their chosen concentrations and learn to make connections across disciplines. They will emerge with prized skills like curiosity (about various disciplines), creativity, critical thinking, comprehension, collaboration, and communication (oral and written).
