Vision & Mission


Faculty Arts and Science at Sampoerna University will be an internationally competitive faculty in the area humanities and sciences. As it prepares citizens for the future, the faculty strives to be forward-thinker leader and should serve the public good in an ethical and responsible way.


To advance knowledge through excellence in teaching, scholarship and creative activities and to provide all Sampoerna University students with an essential foundation in the liberal arts and sciences.  The faculty is committed to the liberal arts philosophy that fosters creative and critical thinking and a lifetime of learning.


Small Class Sizes

Each class is limited to 30 students. This gives every student the opportunity to be engaged in a more effective learning manner as she/he can have more interactions with classmates and with the lecturer. Small class sizes also provide a supportive environment for the realization of student-centered learning approaches that promote critical and creative thinking.

Technology-Enhanced Teaching and Learning

Technology-enhanced teaching and learning. The teaching and learning environment integrates best-in-class digital resources that promote learning inside and outside the classroom. Technology is not just used as a social tool for enjoyment, but a powerful learning tool that allows students to create, explore and become creators of their own knowledge.

Many of our graduates have multiple job offers prior to graduation. Almost 100% are employed within 3 months of graduation. Our graduates have earned a reputation for excellence and started their career in various leading companies and industries in the country. Our alumni are passionate lifelong learners. Many have pursued further studies and received prestigious scholarships — such as Fulbright Scholarship, Australian Awards, Chevening Awards, and LPDP Scholarship — to study in world-class universities such as University of Melbourne, Monash University, Oxford University, University of College London, University of Bristol, University of Manchester, University of Glasgow, University of Toronto, and Syracuse University.
