Introduction to Indigenous studies
Investigate the issues that influence the lives of Indigenous people across the globe, with a focus on the experience of Indigenous Australians.
Inform your understanding through exploring topics including spirituality, colonialism, representation, and identity. A background in Indigenous studies is especially useful to inform work in the public sector, museums, schools and universities and the legal system.
Studying online means that you can explore this broad discipline, while bringing new understanding to your everyday. With knowledge gained from Indigenous studies, you’ll bring new insight to your work and your world.
