The Wollotuka Institute at the university provides courses in Indigenous studies. Additionally, the Pathways and Academic Learning Support Centre offers Indigenous students, students who have recently left high school, and students who are mature-aged programs for postsecondary preparation.

Some of the most critical concerns in the world today are environmental sustainability, development, poverty, and inequality.  Investigate the reasons behind and effects of uneven growth. Analyze potential policy changes for a more sustainable and fair future.

Economic and Aboriginal studies are required core courses in this degree, which is unique among development studies programs in Australia. Analyze, contest, and learn about global theories through social science. Include social justice, the life cycle, gender, class, and race. With a foundation in social science theory and practice, learn how global inequality is developing.


Work with various municipal, state, and federal government departments, consulting businesses, and foreign humanitarian organizations. The transferable abilities acquired during university study may enable graduates to pursue a variety of occupations that might not be immediately related to their studies, as not everyone utilizes their degree in the same manner.
