NOTE: Students can only complete a Minor in Indonesian
Studying Indonesian gives students cultural and linguistic skills to access Indonesia, one of our closest neighbours. With a population of just under 240 million, Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, and it has significant Hindu, Buddhist and Christian populations. Indonesian language proficiency will give students the ability to access this culturally diverse and strategically significant neighbour.
Indonesian language subjects cater for beginning, advanced and background speaker students. A minor in Indonesian can be studied in a variety of degree programs, or as an elective subject.
Students can also include in-country study in their degrees in-country studies, ranging from summer intensive programs at an Indonesian university to full semester or year long programs offered through the Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS). Indonesian can also be studied in the Certificate in Languages which is generally studied concurrently with another degree.
A Minor in Indonesian consists of at least:
• 28 cps for students entering at introductory level
• 32 cps for students entering with HSC or equivalent qualifications
• 24 cps for native speaker students.
Students with little or no prior knowledge will commence their studies with INDO151 and then will study INDO152, INDO251 and INDO252. Students with HSC Indonesian or equivalent competency will normally commence their studies with INDO 251 and then study INDO 252, INDO 351 and INDO 352. Students with native speaker competency will commence their studies with INDO 351 and then study INDO 352, and LANG 210 or another subject relevant to the minor and with the permission of the Director of the Language Centre.
Students may not cross-count any subjects from the minor in any other minor or major study.
