Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta


Department of International Relations, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Gadjah Mada administers International Undergraduate Program (IUP) to prepare students with academic competence for international engagement. The aim is however not merely to participate as a member of world society, but also and more importantly to bring about changes and transformation of the existing political, economic and social conditions into a better world. Indeed, the program is an endeavour toward a just, peaceful and civilised global society. Courses offered are structured along two main threads. Firstly, the courses are a set of studies on specific international relations related objects. Secondly, the courses are also about a specific way international relations is portrayed and a specific subject position on what kind a better future should be. In this respect, students will not be equipped with merely knowledge and skills, but the one that allow students to have critical attitude toward such conditions in international relations as injustice, inequality, poverty, environmental degradation and violence. Specifically, the program is to develop innovative and collaborative learning process in the study of international relations.
