BRIEF HISTORY


The Department of Soil Science was established in 1984 based on the Decree of the Ministry of Education and Culture Number 0563/0/1980 and the Decree of the Directorate General of Higher Education No. 108/DIKTI/Kep/1984, 21 August 1984 on the type and the number of departments in the Faculty of Agriculture, Hasanuddin University.
In line to its vision and mission, the department continuously improves the educational quality in accordance to the existing quality standards. The quality of the teaching staffs is improved through advanced studies both in abroad and domestic universities. The department was accredited A by the Agency for the National Accreditation of Higher Education in 1998 and the department was the first department in the faculty that earned A in the accreditation. In 2007, Department of Soil Science, Department of Agronomy, and Department of Plant Pest and Disease were merged into the Study Program of Agrotechnology, which was based on the Decree of the Directorate General of Higher Education No. 163/DIKTI/Kep/2007.
The department currently has 19 teaching staffs, 63% of them with Ph.D degree, 2 administrative staffs, and 2 laboratory technicians. For the learning and teaching activities, the department has 10 class rooms, 4 laboratories, a seminar room, an administrative room, and lecturers’ offices with a total area of 1372 m2. The teaching and learning facilities are used by about 250 students of the departments and students from other departments who take soil science courses. In order to meet the stakeholders’ needs, the curriculum is regularly evaluated and adjusted. The current curriculum affective since 2015 is now under evaluation and the new curriculum will be implemented in 2020. All students must earn 144 credit units in order to complete their study.

FIELDS OF STUDY
