To ensure the quality of the graduates, the English Department reviews and revises the curriculum of each of the two Study Programs at least every three years. This is undertaken by professional faculty members who are experts in their own respective fields. This continuous development and revision is crucial in order to harmonize and synchronize the content and components of the curriculum with the demand of the progressive global market.
With regards to students’ theses, these are expected to be completed in not more than two semesters, although they can be completed within one semester. Thesis writing can be programmed in the seventh semester; in this way, it is possible for the students to complete their study in less than eight semesters.
The required number of credits that students have to take to pass in every study program is arranged as follows:
- for all Bachelor’s degree programs, the required number of credits is 146;
- for the Master’s degree program, the required number of credits is 37; and
- for the Doctoral degree program, the required number of credits is 46
In order to identify the grouping of the courses within each study program, each course is identified by a code. The coding of the courses is as follows:
1. All courses are abbreviated as three uppercase letters which indicate the grouping of the course, followed by a three digit number which indicates the level and sequential order of the course offering
2. The first uppercase letter is the identity code which represents the program study administering the course.
The grouping is as follows:
- ‘U’ (UMUM) indicates that the course is administered by the university
- ‘FAS’ (FAKULTAS) indicates that the course is administered by the faculty
- ‘P’ (PENDIDIKAN) indicates an educational course that is administered by the English Department
- ‘N’ (NON-PENDIDIKAN) indicates a non-educational course that is administered by the English Department
- ‘G’ (GABUNGAN) indicates a common foundation course that is administered by the English Department.
3. The second and third uppercase letters are IG (INGGRIS) as the identity code for the English Department.
4. The fourth uppercase letter is the program identity, which codes the abbreviation for the course group.
The grouping is as follows:
- ‘B’ (BERSAMA) indicates that the course can be taken by students from both the English Language Teaching and English Language and Literature programs
- ‘K’ (KEPENDIDIKAN) indicates that the course is compulsory only for students of the English Language Teaching program.
- ’N’ (NON-KEPENDIDIKAN) indicates that the course is compulsory only for students of the English Language and Literature program.
5. The first digit ‘6’ indicates that the course is for the Bachelor’s degree program
6. The first digit ‘8’ indicates that the course is for the Master’s degree program
7. The first digit ‘9’ indicates that the course is for the Doctoral degree program.
8. The second and third digits indicate the sequential order of the course offering.
