Indigenous Culture and Languages

Indigenous Culture and Languages (A/T)

In studying Indigenous Culture and Languages, students will explore identity, social justice and human rights issues relevant in local, national and global contexts with particular reference to the world’s oldest continuing culture, the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The course provides learning that allows students to examine and reflect on how indigenous culture impacts on their own learning, and on the development of their knowledge and attitudes.

This course makes provision for students to engage with Ngunnawal culture and language in their own community. In addition, students will engage more broadly with indigenous language and culture in a range of contexts. The course would suit students with an interest in humanities, social studies and linguistics.
