IPEF is a cross-disciplinary program focused on contemporary social practice and critical issues. We emphasize collaborative social engagement through individual & group research, fieldwork, and experiential site-based learning. In our program students explore art and social practice, site-specificity, ecology, public space, urban & land activism, and other sites of cultural inquiry. The 60 credit, three-year program focuses on progressive curriculum with core faculty, visiting artists/scholars, and community partners. IPEF students engage with the neighboring community of Houston’s historic Third Ward, the City of Houston and Gulf Coast region, greater Texas, and the world at large in an interdisciplinary and immersive context.
