Professional experience in social science
Study the importance of culture and tradition working alongside local indigenous groups in Sabah, Malaysia.
We believe in learning beyond the lecture hall. Through Macquarie's unique PACE program, you have the opportunity to increase your knowledge in social science and gain important practical experience working with partner organisations and communities locally, regionally and internationally.
As a social sciences student, Elissa Boyd undertook an international activity in Sabah, Malaysia, working with a local indigenous group to record their traditional knowledge on rice cultivation and its relation to the moon cycle. Elissa produced an outstanding document for the Kadazandusun community to document their traditional practices and help to empower future generations with knowledge and understanding of their cultural history.
PACE activities not only prepare you for your future career, they provide opportunities that can make a difference in the world. Learn more about the opportunities available through PACE.
