Why do a short course in aboriginal studies?
Aboriginal studies will help you develop an appreciation of Indigenous Australia by studying contemporary Indigenous identity, the development of Indigenous societies, Indigenous people's relationship to Western law, and the process of reconciliation. To do this, you can take subjects from anthropology, archaeology, behavioural health sciences, English, genetics and human variation, history, legal studies, linguistics, religious studies, and sociology.
For a list of available subjects, please visit the Aboriginal Studies page in the Handbook.
Please refer to the University timetable to ensure the subject time is suitable.
