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.
Studying a single subject lets you:
- Find other ways into a degree course
- Update your professional knowledge
- Follow a personal interest.
If you're interested in completing a single subject, you can study it in two ways:
- Single subject: Attend lectures, tutorials and submit work for assessment and examination.
- Audit subject: Attend the lecture for your chosen subject without submitting work for examination. A great option if you're studying for personal interest and not applying to a degree course.
While there is no guarantee of entry into a degree, many students have used successfully completed single subjects as the basis for entry. You may also be eligible for credit for the subjects you successfully complete.
