Sejarah

Faculty of Social and Political Sciences Gadjah Mada University-formerly Academy of Political Science-was originally established to educate government bureaucrat candidates in the field of home affairs, information, and foreign affairs in early Indonesian independence. In the early days of UGM, the department of social science and politics was in the same faculty as the science of law and economics. The Faculty of Social and Political Sciences then formed separately since 1955 which later changed its name to Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, abbreviated in Bahasa as FISIPOL.
