Course work includes composing reflections on the creative process and essays on the socio-historic
context of the epics and performance traditions. Students receive 4 credits in the fall semester version of the course where students are taught and tested in introductory Bahasa Indonesia. When the course is offered for 3 credits during summer sessions, there is very minimal Bahasa Indonesia
