Until now a scholar may still widened desires and expectations for most people, of the reasons and motives are diverse, ranging from the motives that are naive to the pragmatic-idealistic altruistic motives. In this case, naive-pragmatic motives can be interpreted as encouragement to focus more on personal interests, for example, to become wealthy, or have positions in the office, through the efforts and actions that justifies any means. While the idealistic motives-altruistic motives can be understood as constituted to serve and provide benefits for others, through the effort to study hard and earnestly.Degree is an academic degree granted to graduates of the undergraduate program (S-1). To obtain a bachelor’s degree, normatively take classes for 4-6 years or have been taking classes with the number of credits as much as 140-160. If someone has passed by a college, then he is entitled to a degree.Until the late 70′s era, where scholars may be said to belong to that rare creature in the land of Indonesia, perhaps because at that time the number of colleges (public and private) in Indonesia is still relatively limited. But along with the expansion of the number of courses of study and still growing number of colleges down to the outposts of the region, the number of undergraduate Indonesia became more scattered, with diverse areas of expertise.Prior to 1993, called on Indonesia college degree can still be counted on the fingers, let’s say for example: Drs., Dra, Ir., Or SH. But since the year 1993 (Decree No. Mendikbud. 036/U/1993), the provision of academic degree designation becomes more diverse, tailored to the respective areas of expertise, (currently the number to reach tens, I too was unable to remember one by one) .In recent years a growing debate related to the presence of the Director General of Higher Education Circular Letter No. 152/E/T/2012 of scientific publications in the Journal of the obligation as a condition to pass to graduate. “A scholar must have the ability to write scientifically, including control procedures of good scientific writing”, so says the Director General of Higher Education Kemdikbud, Djoko Santoso, when interviewed by Kompas.com. Although technically, various problems may arise in implementing it, but personally I basically agree with this provision, the hope may be able to improve the quality of our graduates, especially in developing intellectual culture, which these days seems likely to fade.The latest developments, according to Presidential Decree No. richard maize . 8 of 2012 on the National Qualifications Framework for Indonesia, bachelor (S1) is categorized as an office technician or analyst (not categorized as an expert) in the lower levels (levels) 6 (six), with an overview of qualifications, as follows:Able to apply their expertise in their field and take advantage of science and technology in problem solving and able to adapt to the situation at hand.Mastered a particular field of knowledge of theoretical concepts in general and specifically the theoretical concepts in the field of in-depth knowledge, and able to formulate a procedural problem solving.Being able to make informed decisions based on analysis of information and data, and to provide guidance in selecting a variety of alternative solutions independently and groups.Responsible for their own work and be given responsibility for the achievement of organizational work.Noting the provisions of the National Qualifications Framework Indonesia (KKNI) proficiency level, it appears that a true scholar has a relatively high position in the structure of Indonesian society, seen from the scientific capacity and competence they possess.Thus presumably quite bright, true scholars are not arbitrary and not a haphazard one. Available to him prosecuted for high-level cognitive capacities as well as having responsibility not only to himself and the environment where it is located, but also bear the ultimate responsibility is to the CreatorPerhaps that is a true scholar.
