Students of Language and Culture Department of SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Surabaya Visited FCS UB
On Thursday (10/11/2018), Faculty of Cultural Studies (FCS) Universitas Brawijaya (UB) received a visit from SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Surabaya, East Java. This visit was exclusively for 16 students majoring in Language and Culture who studied Japanese, Mandarin, English, Arabic.
At the visit, they watched FCS UB’s video profile providing a broad overview of FCS UB. The event began with the teacher’s speech followed by a welcoming speech from the Dean of FCS UB, souvenirs handover, and presentation.
Dio Yulian S., one of the accompanying teachers from SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Surabaya said that in the previous year (2017) SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Surabaya also visited UB but they got only a global explanation about UB. In this year, the teachers made it more specific, which was visiting faculties related to each student’s department so that the information they get were clearer and more detailed.
Prof. Dr. Agus Suman, S.E., DEA, as the Dean of FCS UB also said that year by year, the number of students in FCS increased, this was because the need for the importance of linguists in the work field also increased. “Now, student internship program is not only carried out in Indonesia but also in the country of origin of the language studied, for example internship program in Japan which is now carried out by Japanese Literature Study Program students at Allcasting Co.Ltd. Moreover, at FCS UB, students not only learn the language but also the culture,” said the Dean of FCS UB.
The next event was the overview of FCS UB delivered by Yulia Hapsari, M.Pd, the Head of PSIK FCS UB. After delivering the presentation, the students enthusiastically asked about FCS UB. After the question and answer session ended, the students visited the facilities in FCS UB including Movie Room, Multimedia Room, and Micro Teaching Room. (DT/MSH/PSIK FIB)
