Overview of Faculty of Social and Political Sciences
Brief History of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences,
Through Government Regulation no. 7 of 1961, UNDIP was designated as a state university starting 15 October 1960 (this date is designated as the anniversary of Diponegoro University). The faculties that existed at that time were as follows:
- The Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge consists of 2 parts, namely the Law Section and the Socio-Political Section
- Faculty of Economics
- Faculty of Engineering
- Faculty of Teaching and Education in Semarang with a branch in Surakarta.
Before becoming an independent faculty within UNDIP, the Faculty of Social and Political Affairs had been developing for 12 (twelve) years.
In essence, the embryo of the Faculty of Social and Political Affairs has existed since the establishment of the Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge (FHPM) at the University of Semarang on March 1, 1957. In accordance with Government Regulation no. 7 of 1961 dated 21 March 1961 concerning the Establishment of the Diponegoro University in Semarang, The Akademi Administrasi Negara was temporarily included as the part of the Social and Political within the Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge.
Efforts to make the Social and Political Faculty stand alone have been started since 1962, with the formation of the “Preparatory Committee for the Establishment of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Diponegoro University”. Based on the Decree of the President of the Diponegoro University No. 28 / c dated January 6, 1962, the composition of the committee at that time was as follows:
Chairman: Drs. Sukardjan Hadisutikno
Secretary: Drs. Fajar
Member: Drs. Hartoyo and M. Marsono
In further developments, to accelerate the establishment of the Social and Political Faculty, more comprehensive input and/or thoughts are needed. For that, through the Rector Degree’s of Universitas Diponegoro No. 41 / Skpt / SKJ / 1968, dated 18 August 1968, the Preparatory Committee for the Establishment of the Social and Political Faculty of Diponegoro University was added by members. In full, the composition of the committee became.
Chairman: Drs. Sukardjan Hadisutikno
Secretary: Drs. Fajar
- Drs. Hartoyo
- M. Marsono
- Drs. Soetomodradjat
- Drs. Kuncoro Hadi
- Satjipto Rahardjo, SH
Finally, the aspiration to establish an independent faculty was realized with the issuance of the Decree of the Director-General of Higher Education No. 116 of 1968 dated 9 December 1968 concerning the splitting of Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge (FHPM) into:
- Faculty of Law;
- Faculty of Social and Political Affairs.
Starting January 1, 1969, the Faculty of Social and Political Affairs was born with three departments, namely State Administration, Government, and Publicity (now Communication Studies). Then, in 1970, the Department of Business Administration was opened.
Based on the UNDIP Rector’s Decree No. 08 / SKPT09 / 1983 dated January 6, 1983, the name of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences was changed to the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP), with the following Departments / Study Programs:
- Department of Administration Science
- Department of Governmental Science
- Communication Department
- MKDU Department
In its development, the MKDU Department became an UPT-MKU since 1995, and finally separated from FISIP UNDIP, which was under the guidance of Vice-Rector I.
In its development, based on the UNDIP Rector’s Decree No. 609 In 2011, postgraduate programs were integrated into the faculty. Because of that, the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences Universitas Diponegoro until 2014 managed the postgraduate program, which includes:

Along with the development of Universitas Diponegoro into PTNBH, all III-year Diploma study programs that were previously part of FISIP, starting in 2017 become part of the Vocational School (Sekolah Vokasi/SV).
