  • an ability to relate the global/international and the Australian;
  • an ability to recognise the impact of the Australian past on the present;
  • an ability to analyse change today and place contemporary issues and debates in context;
  • an ability to incorporate a reflective perspective; that is, to illustrate the range of opinions between different scholars and disciplines on the subject and how and why interpretations have differed;
  • an ability to evaluate media coverage of current political debates such as those over citizenship/identity and Indigenous issues;
  • an ability to appreciate social, class, ethnic, cultural and gender differences;
