  • Education of Sociology

In Indonesian education system, Social Science is considered one subject in middle schools (Sekolah Menengah Pertama) and the teachers are supposed to be from the Education of Social Science programme. Meanwhile, in high schools, Social Science is divided into four subjects: Geography, Sociology, History, and Economy. With the exception of Economy, each subject's teacher is supposed to be from their corresponding programmes. The Education of Economics and the Education of Accounting programme, respectively, are available in the Economics and Business Education Faculty (FPEB).

Indonesian high school students may choose one of the three programmes: Science and Mathematics (Matematika dan Ilmu Alam), Social Science (Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial) and Language and Culture Studies (Ilmu Bahasa dan Budaya). While History is available in all programmes, a specialized history subject is available for the Social Science students (they study two subjects of history: General History/Sejarah Wajib and Specialized History/Sejarah Peminatan). Anthropology, in the other hand, is available for the students of Language and Culture Studies. Even so, students from the other programme may choose a maximum of two subjects from the other programme as an 'extra subject' (lintas minat) freely of their interest.

For this reason, the programmes available in all of UPI's faculties are also aimed to handle this 'lintas minat' as well as corresponding to the new curriculum system (which enables this 'lintas minat').
