Programs of study at my university in Indonesia
Things seem to be moving forward on my Fulbright award for September. My medical exams are finally completed, and my counterpart in Indonesia has just sent me some information about the courses I will be teaching.
Let’s see if I can put part of that in Bahasa: Kelas atau kursus yang saya akan mengajar. Classes (kelas) or courses (kursus) that I will be teaching (mengajar).
The information below was translated (by Google) from this page. Sarjana (S1) is the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree in the U.S. A bachelor’s degree in communication studies (ilmu komunikasi) is S. IKom (source). I don’t know for sure, but I think “DIII” might be like what they call a “diploma program” in Malaysia — that is, less than a bachelor’s degree, more like a trade school certificate.

* Ilmu can mean both science/sciences and study/studies. My college in Malaysia was called Fakulti Komunikasi dan Pengajian Media: Faculty of Communications and Media Studies. Pengajar is a word for teacher in Indonesia, and that’s the closest word I can find in my Indonesian dictionary. In Malaysia, the most common word for science is sains. My college in Indonesia is called Fakultas Ilmu Komunikasi (FIKOM).
