Bachelor of Arts

Get to know one of Australia's closest neighbours in this major covering Indonesian history, politics, culture, society, and its official language, Bahasa Indonesia.

With over 270 million inhabitants, Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation and is predicted to be the world’s fourth or fifth largest economy in the next decade.

You will learn about Indonesia's emergence as a strategic and economic powerhouse, how its future is informed by the past and by the hundreds of ethnic traditions that have been undergoing sustained revival since the early 2000s.

With graduates in professions across industries including business, tourism, law and mining, studying Indonesian can set you up for a career in just about anything.
