Description

For decades, Indonesian Studies at ANU has been one of the world's strongest centres of excellence in the field, thanks to the unparalleled size, range, and quality of experts on campus. The major provides a well integrated training, keeping a good balance in the scope of study between the past history and present challenges, as well as in terms of analytical approaches drawn from the humanities and the social sciences. Training in this major will significantly enhance qualifications and opportunities for employment in a wide range of fields, such as media industry, education, government offices, or commerce. Successful completion of the major will also provide students a solid foundation for further research work in a higher degree study program.

The Indonesian studies major is designed to complement the Indonesian language major, though knowledge of the Indonesian language is not required for courses in the Indonesian studies major.

 

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of a Bachelor degree with a major in Indonesian Studies, graduates will be able to:

  • Speak and write about theories, factual content and research approaches relevant to Indonesian Studies.
  • Identify relevant regional and international literature relevant to Indonesian Studies.
  • Determine the processes through which current knowledge about Indonesian Studies has been developed.
