INDIGENOUS STUDIES MAJOR
We acknowledge that we are on the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. This land has always been a learning space for many Aboriginal nations, and we draw strength and guidance from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, one of the oldest knowledge systems in the world.
The picture above is called “Meeting Place” and symbolic of our Indigenous Studies program. It is a place of learning and exchange, where knowledge, experience and wisdom is shared in ways that enrich our whole society while nourishing Indigenous cultural integrity, strength and well-being.
We welcome all nationalities to engage with and learn about global Indigenous culture. Indigenous Studies takes you on a journey to a place of deep understanding histories and knowledge systems in a sequence of study that prioritises Indigenous content, scholarship and voices in a broadly decolonising disciplinary framework informed by cutting-edge research, thinking and policy.
