Australia is a relatively young country in world terms. Our Bachelor of Arts (Australian Studies) will give you a broad perspective on issues linked to the Australian continent and its populations, its history and culture, its Indigenous peoples and its place in the modern global world. As an interdisciplinary major, you will draw on diverse fields of study, including anthropology, communication and media studies, drama, English literature, history, Indigenous studies, international relations and music. By the end of your degree you will be equipped to address contemporary cultural and social issues of national importance, in terms of both its national, regional and global contexts.
