ACICIS’ West Java Field Study (WJFS) program is a is a semester-long field study option hosted by Universitas Katolik Parahyangan (UNPAR), Bandung, West Java.
Students propose, refine, and undertake a semester-long field study project under the guidance of a nominated UNPAR supervisor. It is open to advance Indonesian-language students (who compose their mini-thesis in Indonesian) and non-Indonesian speakers for whom all course components are conducted in English.
In many respects the program is similar to an Australian honours semester. It is a unique opportunity to undertake original field study activities in one of Indonesia’s most dynamic cities and the country’s largest province (by population). The program demands a relatively high degree of discipline as candidates undertake what is often their first foray into the postgraduate world.
