Political Science - MA (1999)

Santo Darmosumarto joined the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs after completing his M.A. in 1999. In 2001, he began his PhD at Monash University, Australia and returned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2004. He has held his current position since 2010.

Social Science has opened doors for me to pursue a higher academic degree and it has provided a solid foundation for my career in public service. . . . Although UVic is a small campus, it is big in stature, both in Canada and abroad. The friendships, academic experience, and teaching opportunity provided me with a solid footing to pursue a career in diplomacy and public policy later.

Subsequent education: PhD (Monash University Australia, 2004)
