An Overview Of
Faculty of Social and Political Sciences
Through Government Regulation no. 7 of 1961, UNDIP was designated as a state university starting from October 15, 1960 (this date is set as the anniversary of Universitas Diponegoro). 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 had 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 March 21, 1961 concerning the Establishment of Universitas Diponegoro 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.
The efforts to make the Social and Political Faculty stand alone had been started since 1962, with the formation of the “Preparatory Committee for the Establishment of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Diponegoro”. Based on the Decree of the President of the Universitas Diponegoro 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 were needed. Therefore, through the Decree of Rector of Universitas Diponegoro No. 41 / Skpt / SKJ / 1968, dated August 18, 1968, the Preparatory Committee for the Establishment of the Social and Political Faculty of Universitas Diponegoro added its members. In full, the composition of the committee became as follows.
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 December 9, 1968 concerning the splitting of Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge (FHPM) into:
- Faculty of Law;
- Faculty of Social and Political Affairs.
Starting on 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, the 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:
- Master of Administration (starting in 2019 based on the Rector’s Decree Number: 420 / UN7.P / HK / 2019 changing its name to Master of Public Administration)
- Master of Political Science
