Indonesian Studies
 Indonesian Studies


Indonesian Studies enables students to explore the fascinating linguistic and cultural heritage of one of Australia's closest neighbours, and equip them with appropriate knowledge and skills for communicating in standard Indonesian/Malay as well as for critical reading of sources in the
language. Through language study, students are expected to develop an understanding of Indonesia and the Malay world.

At UNSW, Indonesian Studies combine the teaching of practical language skills with the study of history, society, culture and customs. Students will gain knowledge and skills relevant to a wide range of career paths, from business, trade and commerce to diplomacy, tourism, interpreting and translating, and the media.
