Undergraduate Program Overview
The undergraduate program of Public Policy and Management (PPM) was established under the cluster of social and political sciences not long after the foundation of Fakultet HESP (formerly the Faculty of Law, Economics, and Social and Political Sciences) at Universitas Gadjah Mada in 1952. Then, there were three majors in the Social and Political Sciences cluster: Government, International Relations, and Publicity. HESP was later proliferated into three faculties: Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economics, and Faculty of Social and Political Sciences. The study program Jurusan Usaha Negara (Government Affairs) was established on 19 September 1955. In 1957, Jurusan Usaha Negara transformed into Jurusan Administrasi Negara (Public Administration – JIAN) and was known as the oldest educational institution of public administration in Indonesia. In 2010, JIAN was renamed Manajemen dan Kebijakan Publik (Public Policy and Management – PPM) to keep up with the dynamics of the public administration science and to allow more flexibility for its graduates.
The undergraduate program of Public Policy and Management has been accredited “A” by the National Accreditation Body for Higher Education (BAN-PT). At the international level, the Public Policy and Management undergraduate program is the first Public Administration program to be accredited by ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) in 2014. The AUN-QA accreditation was carried out in collaboration with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the University of Potsdam.
The graduates of the Undergraduate Program of DPPM are awarded the title of Sarjana Ilmu Politik (S.I.P). Students are expected to complete 148 credits, including their final assignment (undergraduate thesis) in 3.5 to 4 years of study.
As a part of its internationalization campaign, the Undergraduate Program of DPPM encourages the students to attend e-lectures delivered in English and offered by Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea. In the lectures, DPPM students present their study cases from Indonesia and exchange experiences with students from South Korea. In addition, some students who engaged in the program were invited to attend in-person lectures in South Korea. The e-lecture courses offered include Comparative Local Governance, e-Governance, and Human Resource Management. In addition, immersion classes were taught entirely in English with subjects such as Corruption and Anti-Corruption and International Institution.
