The Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research is an interdisciplinary coursework program consisting of one core subject - MULT90022: Indigenous Research.
In this course, ‘Indigenous research’ includes not only research by Indigenous individuals, but also research on Indigenous topics. The course explores research and develops research skills from an Indigenous perspective. The course is taught in a mixed mode of seminars, case studies, and group activities, with an emphasis on collaborative learning. Students engage in a range of activities, including structured reflection, academic writing, and formal verbal presentations. Students’ assessment tasks relate directly to their own research.
Upon satisfactory completion of the course, students are awarded a Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research, which will give them 25 credit points towards the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Research and Leadership.
