The Graduate Certificate in Aboriginal Studies at The University of Notre Dame Australia covers Aboriginal history, spirituality, culture, politics, and issues surrounding the principles and practices of reconciliation, and may lead to or enrich careers in community and youth work, justice, education, local, state and federal government departments, health care and health promotion and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs).
While the Graduate Certificate in Aboriginal Studies will be of particular value to those already working with Indigenous communities, this program also provides a useful background for anyone whose career in health promotion, medicine, justice, education or social work brings them into contact with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.
In particular, this degree will be of great value for anyone working in local, state or federal government – or indeed staff employed by NGOs in Australia.
The Graduate Certificate is a part-time program, with four courses completed over the year. All students are required to undertake a course entitled The Silent History.
This provides you with a foundational knowledge of the history of Indigenous Australia, as well as how various government policies have affected the lives of Indigenous Australians.
