Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

Students who have successfully completed the Bachelor of Aboriginal Studies degree or the Bachelor of Aboriginal Professional Practice or the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Social Science with a major sequence in Aboriginal Studies may undertake a further year of full-time study or equivalent part-time study to obtain an Honours degree. International students from health, education and social science backgrounds with relevant degrees are also encouraged to apply.

The Honours degree allows students to further develop their specific areas of interest. The program is specifically Aboriginal in orientation and prepares students for roles such as service provision in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.

Students with disabilities who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester.

The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonably adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity.
