Curriculum

IPSE graduates are expected to have expertise in carrying out natural science instruction using English and information communication technology (ICT). The Learning Outcomes (LOs) of the IPSE are formulated in alignment with the study program’s vision and mission which is to be leading and outstanding in the field of science education in Southeast Asia by 2025. The formulation of LOs also refers to the statutes (specifically government regulation 12/2012 concerning the Indonesian National Qualification Framework-level 6, and 15/2014 specific to UPI). Recommendations from the Indonesian Association of Science Educators (PPII) are also considered in LO formulation.

In July 2018, the current outcome-based curriculum was developed by a team consisting of the head of the study program, all QCCs, and lecturers of the IPSE. There are 10 learning outcomes specified into four categories: attitude, knowledge, general skills, and specific skills. The 2018 curriculum structure has a total of 145 credits taken in 8 semesters and concurs with the UPI Chancellor Regulations No. 12369 /UN40/H /2018 (Guidelines for Curriculum Development of the Study Program UPI 2018) and No. 12372/UN40/HK/2018 (Basic Provisions for the Development of the Curriculum UPI 2018).

The curriculum is prepared by paying attention to prerequisite and competency subjects and is classified into 7 groups, which are spread over several subject categories. 14 credits of General Courses (MKU) are university-level courses. 8 credits in Professional Foundation (MKDK) are basic educational courses. 6 credits are Faculty Competency subjects (MKKF), which link with FMSE level courses, and the 12 Professional Competency credits (MKPBS) are teaching skill courses within the study program. 91 credits of Concentration Competency (MKKIPS) refer to compulsory courses in the study program. To gain practical field experience, students must take a Teaching Practicum course (MKKPPL) for 4 credits study load in the final semester. Additional 10 credits in Optional Courses (MKPPS) may be taken from IPSE electives, or other study programs, or other universities according to the MBKM policy.

The final project can be reached through an undergraduate thesis or a non-thesis project. Students can take the final thesis project when they (a) have passed the prerequisite thesis course, (b) have obtained a minimum of 105 credits with a minimum GPA of 2.50, and (c) have received a recommendation from their academic supervisor.  Students will apply their knowledge in designing, implementing, and reporting scientific research based on their field of study. The alternative non-thesis project is offered to students who have obtained a minimum of 105 credits with a GPA of 2.00-2.49. They must take 6 credits of substitute thesis courses provided by the IPSE and prepare a paper/final project. In special cases students who are eligible to write a thesis (i.e., minimum of 105 credits and a GPA of 2.50) can also choose the non-thesis project by taking 6 thesis replacement courses provided by the IPSE.
