Why study Indonesian?
Indonesia is a country of more than 220 million people. It is our nearest neighbour and has a rich cultural, geographic and political history. Bahasa Indonesia is closely related to Malay and is a language of communication throughout the region, not only in Indonesia, but also Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.
Indonesia is undergoing a period of unprecedented political, social and economic change. Far-reaching reforms of Indonesia's political system and economy are happening with strong signs of genuinely democratic and participatory reform. Studying Indonesian language is a vital key to understanding our region. Our graduates are participating in these exciting changes and their skills are highly sought.
What will I study?
Refer to the course rule.
A knowledge of the Indonesian language and the country's culture, society, and history is an invaluable asset for graduates contemplating careers in government service, private business or teaching in Australia. Our graduates are working in diverse fields including foreign affairs, diplomacy, journalism, healthcare, security, international aid, law, business and education.
Flinders have arrangements with a number of Indonesian universities for a variety of in-country study options. These may be credited to a Flinders degree and some financial assistance is normally available.
Flinders has joined other universities in the Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS). This Consortium provides access to high-quality language study for one or two semester programs in Java.
