The Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Research Methodologies provides an opportunity for students to explore and engage with research practices that support equitable and meaningful engagement in Indigenous contexts. Students are exposed to and analyse alternative epistemological paradigms that can inform research practice and allow for engagement in research that provides outcomes that are consistent with Indigenous communities' vision and aims. Graduates of this course develop a deeper understanding of the epistemological foundations of Indigenous research methodologies and apply skills learned in working with Indigenous people to secure equitable outcomes that may inform community development and public policy outcomes.


The course requires the successful completion of 40 credit points of study. A core unit provides the philosophical foundations for engaging with Indigenous research paradigms and in Indigenous contexts. Thirty credit points of Specialist Electives seek to develop an understanding of and proficiency in the application of specific aspects of Indigenous research practice, ethics and protocols.
