Aboriginal Studies will no longer be offered as a major at UTAS.
College of Arts, Law, and Education executive dean Professor Kate Darian-Smith said the college was working on an "important project" which would see Indigenous perspective, knowledge, and culture embedded across the curriculum.
From 2020 all degrees across the College of Arts, Law, and Education will have Indigenous content.
The news comes on the same day as the university officially apologised to the state's Aboriginal people.
On Wednesday more than 600 people gathered at Domain House to hear the apology from Chancellor Michael Field and Vice-Chancellor Rufus Black.
"Today we reflect on the parts of our past we are not proud of. Today is a moment for humility, truth-telling, pain and accountability," Professor Black said.
"Traditionally, when we have looked back it has been in the spirit of celebrating the University and all that has been achieved during its history, it has been to reflect with a sense of pride, but that is not today," Professor Black said.
UTAS was built on the proceeds of war and dispossession, Professor Black said, and Aboriginal bodies and artifacts were not treated with the respect they were due.
"The change in 2020 to offer Aboriginal Studies as a minor in the Bachelor of Arts degree is a structural change and not a diminution of Indigenous content," Professor Darian-Smith said.
"We are increasing the range of units we offer with Indigenous studies content, providing greater access for students across the university.
"This aligns with the commitment we have made in our strategic plan to systematically promote deep engagement with our place, its Aboriginal culture, social foundations and evolving identity."
The major will continue to be taught to those students enrolled this year.
Professor Darian-Smith said UTAS was always reviewing its curriculum to ensure its teaching was student-focused, sustainable and applicable to the state's place in the world.
Professor Black said the University had been built on the proceeds of war and dispossession.
"For too long the histories we taught hid the true story of war and genocidal behaviour. For too long the wisdom of Aboriginal people was not thought worthy of our academy," he said.
"Today we also acknowledge that this has taken far too long. Here we are in the twenty-first century. Apologies have been far too long in coming. This is unacceptable and we come today to put that right."
You are standing on lutruwita (Tasmania) Aboriginal land, sea and waterways.
This is Aboriginal country, inclusive of the land, sea and river that you see from here.
The palawa people share a sacred link with nipaluna country of Hobart and possessed these lands for sixty millennia.
As you pause to reflect on the depth of culture, history and wisdom on this island, and you connect with the place, kunanyi above and the river below, remember and honour those that came before.
The University of Tasmania acknowledges the deep wrongs committed against the palawa people in our name and unreservedly apologises for them.
Palawa presence will be forever imprinted on these lands and waterways.
