ASC 201 - Australian Indigenous Worldviews

Credits: 4
A person who holds a Bible-based Christ-centered worldview endeavors to be thorough in the application of that worldview to all of life. This unit will introduce some of the ways that Aboriginal peoples view the world around them, and will provide insights into Aboriginal spirituality. The intersection of Aboriginal thought and the revelation of God in Christ found in Scripture will be examined to bring greater understanding of Aboriginal worldviews. This unit will also examine some of the core elements of Aboriginal worldviews in order to develop meaningful dialogue that may lead to the transformation of the Australian national life story.  As part of this unit students will engage in two “in-country” experiences with Aboriginal communities.

Prerequisite(s): Available only to students participating in the BestSemester Australia Studies Centre program.
