The Vision and Mission of UI, FMIPA, and the Department of Biology underlies the preparation of the Vision and Mission, Graduate Profiles, and Curriculum Structure that apply in the Master Programme in Biology.
To be the organizer of the tridharma of higher education that excels in the field of biodiversity, especially in the aspects of conservation and bioprospection, which produces master’s in biology who are able to play a role at the national and global levels in advancing science, technology, and sustainable development.
The objectives of the Master Programme in Biology are:
Programme Learning Outcome
The Program Learning Outcomes reflect the targeted academic qualification level. At national level, the PLOs MPBio are equivalent to the Indonesian National Qualifications Framework (KKNI) Level 8 and Indonesian Biology Consortium (KOBI). The PLOs of MPBio are also feasible and equivalent to the applicable Subject Specific Criteria of ASIIN (a German accreditation agency) for Life Sciences and European Qualification Framework (EQF) Level 7.
The Master Program admission offers two programmes: By-Research and By-Course. Each Program has a different curriculum.
The curriculum structure of By-Research Programme consists of seven (7) compulsory modules: Literature Review 1 and 2, Research Proposal, Progress Results, Scientific Publication 1 and 2, and Thesis. The Course Programme required students to take a minimum of 36 SKS.
Module distribution for By-Research Programme:
The Course Programme required students to take minimum 36 SKS: 24 of compulsory and 12 of elective modules. The compulsory modules for the By Course Programme consist of seven (7) modules: Indonesian Biodiversity, Indonesian Biogeography, Biosystematics, Scientific Writing, Statistics, Scientific Publication, and Thesis.
Module distribution for By-Course Programme:
Elective Modules are based-on five (5) Research Groups:
Workload and Credits
The total credit for each module is based on the workload that includes three types of activities per week of:
- 50 minutes scheduled for face-to-face lectures;
- 60 minutes of structured academic activity, such as doing homework or assignments; and
- 60 minutes of independent educational activities to prepare, explore, and learn the lecture materials. One credit equal to 1.81 ECTS (European credits standard).
The curriculum of MPBio is evaluated, updated, and revised every 4-5 years. These revisions are conducted to ensure the compliance and relevance to the development of science, regulation of the university, professional associations, and job market requirements.
