Develop both broad and detailed understanding of multiple historical contexts as well as fundamental and transferrable skills in historical analysis, historical research, and communication covering multiple themes, geographies, and chronologies.

    You may know about Bali and Komodo dragons but after studying Indonesian you will also know that our closest neighbour has an extraordinary literary history and that knowing Indonesian is an intellectual passport to one of the most exciting and diverse cultures in South-East Asia. A better understanding of Indonesia and fluency in the language are assets for Australians. Many of Australia's key national interests, from security and borders to agriculture and trade, are heavily dependent on Indonesia. As we strengthen our strategic relations with Indonesia, the importance of your knowledge will also grow.

    Being non-scriptic and non-tonal, Indonesian is a relatively easy language to learn. It is also very accessible since it is spoken by more than 250 million people in Indonesia, and understood by the Malay-speaking population in other parts of Southeast Asia. You can study Indonesian beginner or more advanced levels. Our approachable teaching staff, with the help of high-quality interactive teaching materials, will support you to attain high fluency in the language and at the same time gain insights into various aspects of Indonesian society. You can also gain credit towards your degree by having an unforgettable experience in the in-country programs that we manage in collaboration with Australian and Indonesian institutions.

    Careers and institutions that use Indonesian speakers in Australia include NGOs, Foreign Affairs, Creative Industries, community groups and public policy.
