Program handbook

Description

The Bachelor of Global Indigenous Studies program is an interdisciplinary program that studies the history and core learning principles of the discipline of Indigenous Studies. It also explores how critical and creative thinking occurs within Indigenous Studies. Engaging in the course learning will encourage students to consider the complexity of debates within the discipline given the historical importance of issues such as ‘Indigenous identity, culture and knowledges’ with particular awareness of our increasingly connected world. Students will engage with informed, present-day debates about Indigenous knowledges and Indigenous people primarily, but not exclusively in the Australian context, including exploring major concepts and projects underpinning the discipline such as decolonisiation, identity cultures, language revitalisation, and representation.


Program learning outcomes

On successful completion of the program students will have:

  • a broad and coherent body of knowledge, with depth in the underlying principles and concepts in one or more disciplines as a basis for independent lifelong learning.
  • demonstrated cognitive, creative, analytical, and critical skills to effectively plan, analyse present and implement activities in the global discipline and related areas.
  • demonstrated a capacity to synthesise theoretical understanding and skills, with a focus on leadership, to effectively plan, analyse, present and implement activities within the discipline and with non-specialist audiences.
  • demonstrated a critical understanding of ethical and reflective practice to include Indigenous centred perspectives that underlie the globally based discipline.
  • cognitive skills to review critically, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge.
  • cognitive and technical skills to demonstrate a broad understanding of knowledge with depth in some areas.
  • cognitive and creative skills to exercise critical thinking and judgement in identifying and solving problems with intellectual independence.

  • demonstrated the application of knowledge and skills with initiative and judgement in planning, problem solving and decision making in professional practice and/or scholarship.
  • demonstrated the application of knowledge and skills to adapt knowledge and skills in diverse contexts.
  • demonstrated the application of knowledge and skills with responsibility and accountability for own learning and professional practice and in collaboration with others within broad parameters.
