Indigenous Studies Honours Program

Indigenous Studies Honours 2019

Are you passionate about Indigenous Studies? The Honours program is your opportunity to generate new knowledge and understanding, and to design, develop, and complete a significant research project.

Nura Gili offers an Honours program in Australian Indigenous Studies.

An Honours degree in Indigenous Studies involves intensive study of the discipline during a fourth year of study. It is an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in an area of interest and to develop a wide range of skills that can be applied in both academic and professional contexts.

The Honours year is a stand-alone program which consists of both coursework and a substantial research thesis of 20,000 words in length. It may also be a pathway into a graduate research degree (MA Research or PhD).

You may be eligible to enrol in the Honours program if you have completed a Major or Minor in Indigenous Studies, or a related discipline, with a WAM of 70 or above.

For more information, consult the Handbook for Indigenous Studies Honours.
