The Humanities Pathway Program is an enabling program that provides a pathway into academic study in Arts, Social Sciences and Law for Indigenous students with gaps in their knowledge or preparation for University. Indigenous students who are highly motivated to study in these areas will find this program attractive.

By undertaking the Humanities Pathway program, motivated students will have the opportunity to:

  • strengthen their academic literacy and communication skills;
  • develop their critical and analytical thinking;
  • complete introductory courses in their chosen field and
  • adjust to University study with a strong support structure.

Students who successfully complete the Law Plan will, in addition, develop foundational legal skills and knowledge and be exposed to a range of practical legal experiences which will equip them to undertake the Dual Law/Arts program.
