Indigenous Studies explores the controversies, complexities and contradictions that shape what it means to be Indigenous in Australia and the world today. Contemporary Indigenous Australia is a fascinating crossroads of history, culture, power and politics. It includes the study of practical issues such as health in Indigenous communities, political issues like conflicting notions of identity and history, as well as understanding where these issues overlap.
The UOW Bachelor of Social Science (Indigenous Studies) is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to think instinctively about issues that impact on Indigenous individuals and communities on a local, national and global scale. The degree involves a common foundation of compulsory social science subjects in first year, followed by a major in Indigenous Studies.
