Is Aboriginal affairs/social justice for you?

If you're Aboriginal or non-Aboriginal looking to gain an informed insight into the oldest continuing living culture in the world and translate this knowledge into rewarding employment in Aboriginal affairs and make a difference, then this is the degree for you.

Our Bachelor of Aboriginal Professional Practice is purposely designed to provide work ready, strong culturally secured and social advocate professionals across a diverse professional field of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal graduates, to a broad career market in Aboriginal affairs, Aboriginal agencies, businesses and industries targeting Aboriginal professional staff and/or professionally qualified staff to work effectively with Aboriginal communities/clients. All this, in a dynamic degree that has been developed in response to the Aboriginal community and the need to meet current and future professional career markets.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
