If you decide to study at the Department of Governmental Studies, you will be joining one of the greatest and most vibrant Departments in Indonesia. This department is the only one in Indonesia getting accredited “A” and establishing an International Program. The International Program of Governmental Studies is called IGOV.
Both Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) and Department of Governmental Studies are accredited A by the National Accreditation Bodies for higher Education (Badan Akrediatsi Nasional-Perguruan Tinggi). Those achievements have just got a few universities in Indonesia and it makes the department becoming the member of the group of six.
The lecturers and the scholars within the Department study the Governmental studies from its theories to practical, with expertise ranging from political parties, interest groups to policy making processes, implementing policy and system monitoring on sustainable ways. Our research is organized by Jusuf Kallas School of Government and supported by an International Institution- Asia Pacific Society for Public Affairs (APSPA).
As we mentioned before, we are the only one of departments across the country established an International program-IGOV that all of the courses delivered in English and thought by International lecturers. The program also supports International student exchange and has International collaborations with the Korea University, Thammasat University, Khon Khaen University, University Sains Malaysia, Universiti Utama Malaysia and much more.
