Aboriginal studies

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.
