The Bachelor of Applied Social Science is a specialised course that explores the connection between Indigenous knowledge systems and western culture. This is done by focusing on both theory and practice. Concepts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander responsibilities of leadership and community are researched and explored in detail. Through a process of transformative learning, you will develop and demonstrate knowledge of practices that promote advocacy and empowerment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. During this course, you will learn about Indigenous social policy, resource management and community action. You will learn how to work within broader society as an active and culturally-capable agent of change, and apply what you learn in a culturally-informed and respectful manner.
