The Bachelor of Arts (Indigenous Studies) program develops knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal cultures and societies within the Australian community and a broader international context.
The degree recognises social diversity and emphasises human rights and social justice within a framework that promotes ethical action, social responsibility and empowerment. The recent decision of the United Nations General Assembly to adopt the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples also adds a significant international dimension to this field of study.
The Bachelor of Arts (Indigenous Studies) program is the only completely online Indigenous Studies program in Australia.
Anyone can apply.
Open Universities courses are offered in specific study intakes every year, known as Study Periods or Sessions. This means more flexibility as you can choose when to start studying.

Exams are usually held in the week following the end of each Study Period or Session.
