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.
