political culture community). This background has been made in this study. Problems
that arise: How do students' perceptions of the Faculty of Social UNDIP about
democratization in Indonesia?
The purpose of this study was to describe the perceptions of students FISIP
UNDIP about democratization in Indonesia. The data was collected through
questionnaires with a population of as many as 3083 students of Faculty of Social
UNDIP and total sample of 100 students of Faculty of Social UNDIP. This type of
research is descriptive quantitative research.

system of government in Indonesia. College students who are part of the public have
