Australian Studies Minor
The Australian Studies minor has been designed to introduce students to the various ways issues in Australian culture and society are addressed and analysed. The minor explores key themes and events in Australia's past and their impact on the present through questions about national identity, social, cultural and political diversity, race and gender. Crossing between disciplines, this minor aims to offer an insight into the disputes, complexities and contradictions that contribute to what it means to be Australian today.
