The Oorala Aboriginal Centre offer two in-house units which are available to study individually or as part of a degree. Both units are offered at two levels.

Aboriginal Resilience and the Arts

The units trace Aboriginal people’s resistance to colonisation by focusing on the role the arts have played in the maintenance of Aboriginal cultural vitality over the last 230 years. Topics range from an exploration of the importance of stories and songs in Aboriginal society to the development of strong Aboriginal voices in Music and Film in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Working with Aboriginal People

The units examine the history of relationships between Aboriginal and non-Indigenous people; current issues related to health and well-being of Aboriginal communities; and equip students to effectively work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a variety of professional settings.
