Introduction to Indigenous studies
Learn about the issues that matter to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.
When you choose an Indigenous studies course, you will investigate rich topics such as representation, identity, colonialism and connection to Country. The insights you gain will give you a profound respect for Indigenous Australian experiences, and help you to build stronger connections with diverse members of your community. This can inform your work in any number of industries, including education, allied health, media and social welfare.
