Department of Indonesian Studies
Indonesia is a complex and exciting country, so close to Australia yet different in so many ways. Bridge the gap with Indonesian Studies! Meet people, places, cultures and ideas that will change your way of looking at the world around you and give you an insight to our near neighbour. Drawing on our extensive links in Indonesia and with the Indonesian community in Australia, the department offers students a highly integrated and contemporary program covering Indonesian history, politics, geography, anthropology and culture. Language levels cater to students from beginner to background speaker. Mix with academics and other students whose lives have been touched and enriched by Indonesia and its peoples, and you could look forward to a career in research, education, government or the arts.
