Selected major: Indigenous Studies
Indigenous ways of being and doing are being increasingly understood for not just their historical value, but for their place in contemporary society. This major provides a number of opportunities to learn such concepts and how to utilise them in future careers including the role of Indigenous Knowledges in a range of contemporary fields, and concepts of Indigenous entrepreneurship in today's world.
You’ll experience contemporary community organisations and the issues they face in the capstone unit to learn and adopt culturally safe practices which can be applied to your professional career.

I chose Swinburne because of the great location and I stayed throughout a change in study direction due to the incredible lecturers and tutors. They constantly go above and beyond to provide assistance. I started in a digital media and marketing degree and changed to education/arts. In doing so I've found my true passion.
