This honours course aims to extend your research skills and help you discover more about areas of Indigenous studies that truly fascinate you.

The honours course at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies (CAS) provides specialised training for graduates in research in Indigenous Australian contexts.

Being a research student at CAS provides you with the unique opportunity to contribute to Indigenous knowledge.

A combination of coursework and a research project provides students with training and experience in research positioning, methodologies and methods, and in using research literature critically.

Emphasis is placed on Indigenous Terms of Reference and the importance of respecting cultural and community protocols when conducting research.

Students from the CAS honours program may graduate from the following major streams:

  • Indigenous Community Development and Management
  • Indigenous Community Health
  • Indigenous Australian Cultural Studies.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
