Student’s Service Program (SSP) is a program in which students will learn to know different culture from its language, customs, history, and people. Students will also learn to understand themselves better and know their place in the world.
This program is divided into two main activities namely acquisition and cultural recognition. The service assignments that students should undergo are supposed to build up their language skill and knowledge on the culture. In order to do so, students will have to learn Bahasa Indonesia which is quite easy to master. However, it should be understood in terms of local dialect. For that reason, learning Bahasa Indonesia is closely related to learning the culture of local people.
The proposed workshops are :
> Puppet making
> Gamelan instrument
> Javanese Dancing (Classic and Modern)
> Earthware Crafting
> Silver Crafting
> Leather Crafting
> Angklung (Bamboo music)
Excursions and field trips are designed to be the extensions of the lectures given at class. It is meant
to give students the real space that they can explore. Suggested places are :
1. One Day / Half Day Excursion
> Pilgrimage places (e.g. Sendangsono-Catholic, Borobudur-Buddha, Bayat-Moslem, Parang Kusumo-Javanism)
> Sangiran Dome (Prehistoric site)
> Buddhist and Hindu Temples
> Sultan’s Palace
> Merapi Volcano (trekking)
> Home Industry in Villages such as Batik, earthware, traditional food
> Salak (snake-skin fruit) Plantation
As the goal of this program is to give the best experience for students about the local life, students will live with their host families most of the time. Coordinator will stay separately from the students. During the program, students will stay in university dormitory.
The host families will come from various religious background as well as social background. They preferably will be chosen from families who are in terms of economics and educations are in the middle level. The life of other levels of society will be indirectly observed and studied on the other activities.
