Indigenous Australian Studies
The major units of study are coordinated and taught by the Koori Centre through the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
If you wish to take these units of study you need to enrol through the faculty, not the Koori Centre.
Indigenous Australian Studies is an interdisciplinary program of study. It gives students an opportunity to develop a deep understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and knowledge systems. It also draws upon the ideas and methods of disciplines including history, literature, sociology, health, linguistics, film and archaeology to examine the scholarly and everyday construction of knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their experiences and histories.
Taught by Koori Centre academic staff, Indigenous Australian Studies units are offered through the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and are available to all students as a Table A major.
Block-mode programs (away from base)
Please be aware that block mode programs are for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students only. Students will attend classes at the Camperdown/Darlington campus for six one-week blocks each year with the remaining study taken at home.
