Aboriginal Studies


Board Developed Course (ATAR)

The Aboriginal Studies course examines the historical and contemporary experiences of Aboriginal peoples. It aims to develop students’ knowledge, understanding and skills about the inter-relationship between the concepts of an Aboriginal world view, a shared history of Australia and social justice, with a view to enabling students to be active and informed citizens.

This course is often chosen to develop the cultural sensitivity and communication skills required for health, policing and community services careers, along with Indigenous students to further develop cultural understanding and students with an interest in the rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal Australia.
