Aboriginal studies provides students with an opportunity to learn about the past and present experiences of Aboriginal and other Indigenous peoples through research and inquiry methods. Students study:
- the impact of social justice and human rights issues from pre-contact to contemporary times
- the effect of laws, policies and other legal decisions
- Aboriginal cultural, political, social and economic life today.
The NESA Aboriginal studies page contains the syllabus and support materials including a sample assessment grid, standards packages, HSC exam specifications, sample exams and past papers.
