Study Indigenous Australian Studies

By studying Indigenous Australian Studies, you will learn about the cultural, historical, economic and social issues affecting Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.  This broadly based program delivers this collective knowledge in the context of our various areas of study, so that you can see the relevance and application of it in your chosen fields.

You can study the Indigenous Australian Studies Major if you have 80 credit points of open electives, or the Sub-Major if you have 40 credit points of open electives. Alternatively, you can enrol in individual units from the program.

Enrolment in the IAS Major, Sub-Major or units is available to all undergraduate students who have open electives.
