“Indonesian Studies in the context of linguistic, literary and philological studies in the era of digital technology 4.0. turned out to require academics to answer the challenges of the times. Now, enthusiasts of Indonesian studies in the West also demand that we can provide digitally accessible primary sources and scientific studies. In this case, we should adapt to help access that information smartly. In an effort to introduce the study of Indonesian language, literature and philology internationally, we also need to realize the motto of "Excellence with Morality" Universitas Airlangga. The Indonesian Language and Literature S1 Study Program, Faculty of Cultural Sciences, Airlangga University has a vision to produce graduates who are familiar with technology and of good quality at the academic level and have strong soft skills. This is achieved by making the curriculum based on the concept of qualifications of the Indonesian national framework as the core of learning outcomes. The Indonesian Language and Literature Study Program has three areas of specialization, namely linguistics, literature, and philological studies. This specialization is expected to prepare prospective graduates to have excellent analytical skills in language studies, literature and philology. This is very necessary, especially in the global and modern era in the digital 4.0 era. like this time. That is why independence, creativity, collaboration, and other soft skills are needed to support the success of graduates in the world of work. These competencies are not enough if they are not accompanied by knowledge in the cognitive domain and applicable skills. Therefore, the Indonesian Language and Literature S1 Study Program provides its students with several cognitive, applicable and appreciative courses such as Drama performance, Lexicography, Indonesian Language for Foreigners, Preservation of Indonesian Manuscripts etc. The goal is for graduates to be immediately absorbed in the job market, especially in the fields of industry, media/journalism, education, tourism, information business and government.”
